Let's be friends

Our ASME South Texas LinkedIn Group is growing!  We continue to build our membership on today's hottest Professional Network.  We are looking for a few people who would be interested in becoming Admins to help with keeping the site up to date with informative articles on Mechanical Engineering here in Houston. This is a great way to become involved and connect with other ASME members in the Houston Area. 


We are here to help with all your ASME and engineering related questions. Feel free to reach out to us on Social Media :
