Call for Papers for

 

The 2nd Presentation Contest by Students

and Young Engineers in English Language

 

Hosted by ASME Japan Section

 

August 27th, 2010, Tokyo, Japan

 

Venue: Nihon University, Surugadai Campus

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 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 1st contest was organized last year by inviting selected students from several universities who were going to talk at the international conferences in the immediate future.
