Events and Announcements

2014 TRC Test Drive 

MEAS will be holding its annual TRC Test Drive on May 3, 2014. For those of you who aren't familiar with it, the TRC Test Drive is a hands-on vehicle dynamics demonstration on a closed course. In other words, you get to drive cars (provided by TRC, not your own) in ways that wouldn't be safe/legal on a public street (under supervision of highly trained professionals, of course).

Please remember that we are only permitted to bring 30 alumni with us. The list will be generated on a first come, first served basis, but MEAS MEMBERS WILL HAVE PRIORITY. Please only register if you are sure you can attend. If you cancel or do not show up after you have made the final list, you will not be able to participate the following year. 

New this year, we are using the Alumni Association’s Customer Service team for our registration.; Registration is open to Sustaining Members from April 1 - 8. If you are a Non-sustaining member and would like to register during the first week, you will need to make a $25 donation to the ME Alumni Society Scholarship Fund when you call in. Otherwise, non-sustaining members are not eligible to register until April 9.

To register, please call the Ohio State Alumni Association at 1-800-762-5646 or 614 292-2281, Monday-Friday between the hours of 7:30 am and 5:00 pm.

We are always open to suggestions for new events, so please reach out to us!

New MEAS Membership Model 
We are excited to announce, that the OSU Mechanical Engineering Alumni Society (MEAS) has switched to a new membership model. As you know, in the past, members submitted annual membership dues to MEAS. MEAS has switched to a “sustaining”membership model, which was initially adopted by the Ohio State University Alumni Association. This new model allows OSU alumni to contribute $75 to any Ohio State fund(s) to become a member of The Ohio State University Alumni Association. The good news is by electing for at least $25 of the $75 minimum contribution to go to approved MEAS funds, alumni will obtain membership to MEAS.  

Please see the link below for the eligible MEAS funds:

What is MEAS?

Formed in 1986, MEAS is a chartered society of The Ohio State University Alumni Association, Inc.  Our mission is to provide scholarship assistance, awards, social activities, and professional fellowship for the alumni, students, faculty and friends of the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at the Ohio State University. 

We accomplish this by sponsoring a wide variety of activities and annual awards for students and alumni. Although we obtain some support from The Ohio State University Alumni Association, we are an independent organization, and we rely on our members to support our many exciting  and rewarding activities
