The Division summaries will highlight the successes and the growth that IPTI and its individual Divisions have experienced globally due to the efforts of our tireless volunteers.
IPTI, through the Institute model, primarily draws upon the skills of dedicated IPTI staff that, in turn, leverages the broader ASME staff resources, thus empowering IPTI volunteers to succeed in their initiatives.
The foundation of IPTI Division success is rooted in successful world-recognized conferences.
You may have heard about the following IPTI signature events such as the annual Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston, the annual Ocean, Offshore, and Arctic Engineering (OMAE) conference, and the biennial International Pipeline Conference (IPC) in Calgary.
IPTI is also examining opportunities to bring subject matter expert volunteers from the three member Divisions together to organize one event.
Our IPTI volunteers are excited about the ever-expanding portfolio of technical engineering courses and workshops.
The IPTI Divisions are able to attract world-recognized subject matter experts to provide this training, which is offered both locally and internationally in classroom format.
IPTI recognizes that a key solution to the coming shortage in engineering expertise is to make students aware of the challenges and exciting work offered by an engineering career, and how their contributions will make a difference in society.
The IPTI volunteers are very excited about the ever-expanding portfolio of technical engineering courses and workshops.
In addition, the IPTI Divisions have active and growing programs to continually engage engineering students and young professionals.
Our past IPTI chairman said it best back in October 2011 when he stated, "Bestowing awards is one of the greatest pleasures of our organization, because it allows a unique opportunity for the industry as a whole, an unencumbered opportunity to look inside itself and discover its own greatness.
At IPTI we are excited about our future within ASME and we would like to share our excitement with you.
