SAE Collegiate Design Series

Affiliating as an International Student

International students must be a member of one of the following organizations:

  • SAE International
  • SAE Affiliates (SAE India, SAE Brasil, SAE Australasia, and SAE Japan)
  • International Societies (IMechE, ATA, and VDI)

SAE International Members

As long as your student membership is active and currently affiliated correctly, you do not need to do anything different because you are an international student member.

SAE Affiliate Members

If you’re a member of an SAE affiliate, your membership may not be active in the SAE International system for up to a month after you renew or register with your affiliate organization.  All team members must update their memberships at least one month prior to the opening of online registration so they can be affiliated to the team.

Members of an affiliate organization will need to create a free user account to obtain a customer number for www.sae.org.  After creating it, email collegiatecompetitions@sae.org your customer number and university so we can affiliate it to the proper university.
