Engineering Science and Mechanics Alumni Society
The Penn State Engineering Science and Mechanics Alumni Society (PSESMAS) is a group of diverse, passionate alumni who endeavor to be catalysts to motivate many other alumni to interact with the ESM department, its students, and other alumni.
To promote lifelong, mutually beneficial relationships that improve the quality of the department and the education it provides to both undergraduate and graduate students.
Advance the department’s world-wide recognition, specifically in recruiting and retaining diverse, quality students; preparing these students for the work environment; and promoting the understanding, attractiveness, and perceived value of engineering science and mechanics in industry, research, and academia.
To execute this mission, the alumni advisory board, working closely with ESM department faculty and staff, will establish an active network of alumni and students, interact with all involved parties to generate strong communication paths, and advocate for department initiatives and ESM students throughout the “lifecycle” of their recruitment, education, and careers.
PSESMAS has five focus areas and five committees to guide its efforts:
- Student Recruitment
- Student Mentoring
- Student Job Placement
- Department Identity and Communications
- Department Development and Alumni Relations
