About Us

SAE International is a global association of engineers and related technical experts in the aerospace, automotive and commercial-vehicle industries. Our core competencies are life-long learning and voluntary consensus standards development.  SAE's charitable arm is the SAE Foundation, which supports many programs, including A World In Motion® and the Collegiate Design Series.

As one example of an exclusive SAE Member benefit,  Member Connection is a private, online community.  Members can make the most of this forum by participating in technical discussions,  sharing knowledge, and engaging with peers around the world that they might not otherwise meet (substantially increasing their network!) You can also utilize Member Connection to:

  • Post or respond to questions related to your day-to-day job or to the mobility industry at large 
  • Share helpful information with your industry peers by uploading a technical paper, study or other resource
  • Build your professional network by reaching out to colleagues through the interactive Member Directory
  • Get active and engaged on the local level by searching the latest SAE Section events
