MISCELLANEOUS NEWS FOR STUDENTS
SAE AT A UNIVERSITY NEAR YOU

STUDENT DAYS ON MEMBER CONNECTION

The SAE Membership Team
recently visited universities
in Pittsburgh to inform
engineering majors of what
SAE has to offer them.
As you may or may not
know, SAE International
is headquartered near
Pittsburgh, Penn. The
Membership Team decided
to take a road trip to their
own back yard to talk to
students-because while
there are multiple Baja and SAE International covers the cost of having
Formula teams at Pittsburgh professional engineers make presentations to
universities, there aren't
SAE Collegiate Chapter. Only Chapters, not SAE
many SAE Collegiate
Collegiate Design Series teams, enjoy this free
benefit, which is called the SAE Industrial Lecture
Chapters.
So what does that mean? Program. Shown here is SAE Industrial Lecturer

(CDS) team (Baja, Formula,
Aero Design, and others),
but still associated with SAE. Now, while you can have both, you can also
have one or the other.
There are multiple benefits to having a chapter...such as a $5
reimbursement per student member to use toward your vehicle or
any student activities. Plus, only chapters can request free lecturers to
come on campus as part of the SAE Industrial Lecture Program. You can
learn more about that at sae.org/participate/membership/collegiatechapters/industrial-lecture-program. Essentially, there are tons of
industry professionals to choose from, with topics ranging from the
business of motorsports, to vehicle dynamic testing, and more.  You'll
also want to add the leadership positions available through a chapter to
your resume.
The creation of a chapter is also extremely easy. You'll need at
minimum 15 student members to start, a faculty advisor, two letters of
support, and you're ready to submit your paperwork to Abby Hartman,
SAE Local Activities Specialist (abby.hartman@sae.org).
As for the success of the Pittsburgh visits-they went extremely
well. The team was able to recruit new student members, talk about
the merits of SAE overall, and a few of the universities are also starting
chapters now.
Are you interested in SAE visiting your university to help spread
awareness of SAE? Do you have questions on how SAE can help your
career grow? You may also have a current chapter you'd like some help
with. Whatever the case, we'd be happy to visit you, or send along one
of our long-time members as a volunteer. To determine availability for a
visit, email MembershipTeam@sae.org.

Prizes were handed out to the students who participated
in the September 26 and 27 Student Days program in
Member Connection. The goal of the program was to
solicit their input so SAE can improve its services to
SAE Student Members. Their comments can be found at
https://www.sae.org/studentdays.
