UNH Student Branch

posted Oct 10, 2017, 6:01 PM by VP NH   [ updated Oct 10, 2017, 6:02 PM ]

We are working this year to re-establish an ASHRAE Student Branch at UNH Durham. The first meeting at UNH to help to re-establish the student group will be on Wednesday October 10th at 6 PM. An email from President Paul Bemis went out to both the Civil and Mechanical Engineering students. The email invite is copied below:

Hello,

 

My name is Paul Bemis and I am the President of the NH Chapter of ASHRAE. I am interested in restarting the UNH ASHRAE Student Chapter at UNH and would like to invite you to hear me speak about this over pizza and soda on Wednesday evening (10/11) at 6 PM. ASHRAE is a professional organization focused in the “built market” on the proper design of commercial and residential buildings. Here are a few of the many reasons for your involvement in ASHRAE;

  • Access to an organization 60,00 engineers worldwide who are passionate about the design and creation of energy efficient buildings.
  • Opportunity to apply and receive scholarships of up to $10,000
  • Design competitions like this years Applied Engineering Challenge (of which 5 UNH students are involved).
  • Job opportunities upon graduation in the design/build community
  • ASHRAE is the standards and technology research organization for the design of everything from skyscrapers to natatoriums and vivariums

 

The gathering will be in Kingsbury Hall in S145 at 6 PM. I will bring the pizza and soda and spend a few minutes showing you around the ASHRAE organization and answering questions. I encourage you to come along and eat some free pizza while becoming exposed to a very cool organization. For more information, check out the ASHRAE Student Zone.

 

Thanks,

 

Paul Bemis

Granite State Chapter scholarships

To help promote the HVAC profession by supporting students studying in the field of HVAC, the NH ASHRAE chapter typically awards two scholarships each year, one each to a deserving student at NHCTC and UNHM. Students are nominated for the scholarships by the faculty advisors for the two student chapters and voted on by the chapter B.O.G.

This year's recipient is Steven Cope, from Raymond NH. Steve is a person switching careers. Steven (right) is receiving an award from Dave Pichette.
