PURPOSE: The ASME Japan is pleased to host this contest as its pillar
educational endeavor.  Needless to say, the competence in presenting
technical reports in English language is crucial for engineers of present
and future generations to advance their careers in increasingly globalized environment.  Considerable efforts have been waged to strengthen English

language capability of Japanese engineering students and young engineers.

 

However, little efforts have been made with a focus on the presentation

skill, and such targeted educational programs have rarely been undertaken

by professional societies.  The ASME Japan decided to launch a program which

Is designed to provide students and engineers in mechanical engineering with

opportunities to experience public presentation and evaluation by senior

members of the society.  As an initial step of this endeavor the contest this

time is organized by inviting selected students from several universities who

are going to talk at the international conferences in the immediate future.
