I belong to several technical societies, including ASM International and The Metallurgical Society (TMS). I became a student member about 20 years ago, and I was able to get a joint membership in ASM and TMS, and stayed a member in both. It is a great way to stay in touch with developments in the field, develop and maintain a network of contacts (great when one is looking a job or change of jobs), and participate in the development of technology and standards for the technology.

I strongly recommend participation in the these two societies.

ASM members will obtain on-line access to two very good desktop references:

  • Metals Handbook Desk Edition, 2nd Edition
  • Engineered Materials Handbook Desk Edition
