Founded in 1880 by a small group of leading industrialists, ASME has grown through the decades to include more than 120,000 members in over 150 countries worldwide. ASME’s diverse membership base ranges from College students and early-career engineers to project managers, corporate executives, researchers and academic leaders. ASME aims to serve this wide-ranging technical community through quality programs in continuing education, training and professional development.

Professor Dai was elected to the ASME Mechanisms Committee in 2005 and he has been the Chairman for the UK and Ireland ASME section since 2010. The Fellow Grade is the highest elected grade of membership within ASME, the attainment of which recognizes exceptional engineering achievements and contributions to the engineering profession. The ASME Board of Governors confers the Fellow grade of membership on worthy candidates to recognise their outstanding engineering achievements.

Professor Dai has been at the College since 1999 and was elected to Fellow of Institution of Mechanical Engineers of UK in 2006. His research interests include robotics, kinematics and mechanisms; advanced machinery, motion control, assembly and industrial automation.
