Is there SAE life after college?
Of course! More than 121,000 professionals and enthusiasts are members of SAE International, the world's premier mobility engineering society - and you should be too. That's because knowledge and experience will be the fuel that propels your future, and SAE has the tools to help you get there. As an SAE member, you have many options:
  • Make an impact on technology development and implementation by participating in committees and forums that develop important industry standards.
  • Prepare for career advancements by developing leadership and organizational skills, while making contacts as a member of a local section board. Then work your way up to SAE International boards and committees.
  • Refresh your knowledge of cutting edge technology by attending SAE seminars, using eLearning tools, reading publications or participating in technical sessions at SAE meetings.
  • Capture peer and employer attention by writing papers and presenting at SAE conferences.
  • Earn college credit toward a graduate degree or receive a professional certificate in Automotive Systems through SAE programs.
  • Help children learn - and get excited about - engineering and scientific concepts through SAE's A World In Motion (AWIM) elementary and middle school programs.

  How do SAE members feel about their society?

"As a 21 year member, I can personally attest to the value of SAE membership. Just as importantly, I can assure young engineers that companies see SAE and its members as vital parts of our industry communities. That's why General Motors and its employees are active participants in SAE events, standards committees, Sections and more. I recommend that every young engineer take advantage of the opportunities SAE provides to enhance your career by developing your skills and visibility."
Ned McClurg, Vice President of Engineering for GM Powertrain
