Program Provides Policy Making Experience
Four Georgia Tech graduates have joined the ranks of the 2010 American Society of Mechnical Engineers (ASME) Federal Government Fellows. The program provides a valuable public service to the nation while simultaneously gives engineers a unique opportunity to participate directly in the policy making process.
Mechanical engineering graduate Adam Christensen is working in the office of Washington State Congressman Jay Inslee who represents the North Seattle and the Puget Sound area. Tony Dickherber, a bioengineering graduate, is working with the National Cancer Institute while Richard Simmons and Jaqueline Tront are both assigned to the State Department.
Over the past few decades, ASME Federal Fellows have distinguished themselves as key advisors on standards, nanotechnology, risk analysis, critical infrastructure, energy, education, aerospace, manufacturing, technology development and other national issues of the day.
