By Sam Y. Zamrik, Ph.D. ASME President 2007-2008 We look forward with great expectation to how the global mechanical engineering community will rally around the challenges and goals identified at the Global Summit on the Future of Mechanical Engineering 2028. Our distinguished speakers and guests from 19 countries became a “think tank” that will help our profession create a roadmap to assist us in fulfilling the vision of our profession over the next 20 years. Mechanical engineers must provide solutions to the drivers of change we learned about during this summit. We are inspired by a vision that calls us to: Develop sustainably through new technologies and techniques, and respond to the global environmental pressures brought about by economic growth; Be at the forefront of implementing a system design approach across large and small-scale systems; Engage in international collaboration around our critical knowledge and competencies; Work in the emerging Bio-Nano technologies to provide solutions in such diverse fields as healthcare, energy, water management, the environment and agriculture management, and Create engineering solutions for the other 90 percent that live on less than two dollars a day. The vision and scope of this summit is broad but not unreachable if we draw upon our collective talents, thoughts, ideas, resources and the collaboration and contributions of our global profession. Mechanical engineers must be able to adapt and change in order to produce globally competitive engineers that will contribute to the growing needs of our profession over the next two decades. We should continue this dialogue and begin to formulate answers and solutions to achieve this vision together.
