Awards

AIME funds the annual conference of 25 awards, including Honorary Membership. Many of these carry the namesake of icons within the AIME disciplines of mining, metallurgical, and petroleum engineering, the iron and steel industry, and materials science.

AIME's Member Societies also have separate awards programs. Click on their organizational acronym to learn more: SME, TMS, AIST, SPE.
