ASME launches online networking community

The American Society of Mechanical Engineers hosts PeerLink—an online interaction tool that provides a forum for problem solving, resources, and social networking to the engineering community.

Responding to the growing need of engineers and other technical professionals to engage in productive dialog and information exchange, the the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) has launched an online networking site called ASME PeerLink .

ASME PeerLink is an online interaction tool designed to enhance the communication needs of mechanical engineers and the interdisciplinary engineering community. ASME PeerLink brings a new dimension to Web-based communications for engineers by providing an interactive forum for problem solving, innovative solutions, ideas and other helpful resources from colleagues and professionals with shared goals and interests.

As of May 16, PeerLink has more than 7,000 registered members.

“More than just a discussion board, ASME PeerLink provides a vehicle for engineers who value the ability to collaborate and network throughout the local and global engineering community,” said Virgil R. Carter, ASME executive director.

ASME PeerLink helps broaden communication capabilities with peers and other professionals through blogging, interactive whiteboards, document collaboration and the establishing of new online communities.

Access to the ASME PeerLink site is open to ASME members, students, and non-members of ASME who can join by registering online for free access.
