ASM International was founded in 1913 and became known as the American Society for Metals. Today ASM International is the world's largest association of metals-focused materials engineers, scientists, technicians, educators, and students.
A member and volunteer based organization, ASM International serves as a central resource that gathers the latest applied information from the field and disseminates it back to industry, academia, and government through published content, classes, conferences, expositions, and local chapter engagement.
By acting as a catalyst for vigorous professional activities, ASM International fuels a passionate sense of community, energizes members to aspire to new levels of success and satisfaction, advances the development of materials, and ultimately elevates the importance of our professions.
