Professor Shapour Azarm has begun his tenure as Chair of the Design Engineering Division (DED) of the American Society of Engineers (ASME), serving through June 2007. DED is one of the largest divisions of ASME with over 36,000 members, 12 technical committees, and sponsors or co-sponsors five ASME transactions journals. DED also sponsors the International Design Engineering Technical Conferences (IDETC); a significant number of sessions in the International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition (IMECE), and is a major contributor to the National Manufacturing Week Conference that is held annually in Chicago.

DED seeks to develop, promote, encourage, and support its members and technical committees in their quest for technical excellence and professional success in their respective field. DED also works to provide necessary processes and mechanisms to spawn new initiatives and identify emerging technologies through technical meetings, publications, and member interest activities.

To prepare for his work as Division Chair, Azarm attended an ASME sponsored ?Leadership Training Conference? in March. During his tenure, Azarm hopes ?to be forward looking and embrace change while simultaneously keeping in sight the things the Division has historically done well.?

In related ASME Design Engineering Division news, Associate Professor Satyandra K. Gupta serves as the Design for Manufacturing Chair on the Division's technical committee roster.
