Oral Competition

What is the Oral Competition & Prizes

An engineer, like all professionals, must possess a well-developed ability to communicate, both orally and in writing. The Oral Competition is designed to emphasize the value of an ability to deliver oral presentations.

The Oral Competition is sponsored by the ASME Old Guard Committee. Through annual financial contributions and volunteer time and efforts, the Old Guard conducts this program for the benefit of engineering students and early career engineers, and ultimately for the good of the engineering profession.
