Beginning with ESD's founding in 1895 and beyond, the Society boasts a long list of accomplishments, achievements and impact along the way. Take a walk down memory lane in the latest issue of TechCentury magazine. The issue includes photos and member stories that outline the impact of ESD on Detroit, and its evolution keeping up with the engineering industry.

Join the ASME community on April 25 for their Engineering Festival (E-Fest) to learn about engineering student innovation ideas. E-Fests are regional events for engineering students that include design competitions, career development workshops, access to thought leaders and innovators in various engineering fields, and more.

We're in this together. If you need anything or want to talk about how things are going, I'm here to help. Feel free to reach out to me or a member of ESD's staff at anytime for assistance.
