Students pursuing engineering studies are also offered membership in ASHRAE. Student members in the international society enjoy several benefits. Besides discounts on many ASHRAE technical publications, student members may register at a reduced rate for ASHRAE’s semi-annual conferences. The Winter Conference, which attracts tens of thousands of attendees from around the world, meets in Chicago every three years. The society also awards scholarships and grants that enable students to continue their engineering studies. ASHRAE conducts an annual Student Design Project Competition. Review the Student Membership Brochure for more information.
