The CSME is supported by over 30 engineering departments across Canada. The benefits for Sustaining Member Departments include:
- Annually, the CSME sends Sustaining Member Departments a CSME Gold Medal to be awarded to a student of their choice. The award criteria and timing are set by the Sustaining Member Department. The medal comes with a certificate and is mailed to the department chair, usually in early April.
Sustaining Member Departments are eligible to have student teams participate in the annual CSME Student Design Competition. This competition is held in alternate years at the CSME International Congress and at the Canadian Congress of Applied Mechanics (CANCAM).
Sustaining Member Departments may request a free half-page advertisement in the CSME Bulletin, e.g. to announce faculty position openings, conferences hosted by the department, etc.
The support of each Sustaining Member Department is acknowledged on the CSME website and on the back cover of the CSME Bulletin, which is published twice per year.
Membership Fee (2017): The membership fee for Canadian sustaining engineering departments is $600 per annum, and $750 per annum for International sustaining engineering departments.
