Momentum - April 2020 - 2

If you want to be a future rock star in the
mobility industry, I've got fantastic news. You've
already taken a great first step by becoming
an SAE Student Member. Not only do you
have premier access to a host of educational
and career-development resources, you
also have the opportunity to get noticed by
publishing a paper through a members-only
tech paper competition or by showcasing your
hands-on experience by competing in one
of SAE's renowned Collegiate Design Series
Donna Edenhart,
(CDS) programs. The bottom line is that SAE
SAE Director,
cares about your future, and we work hard
Membership & Sections
to ensure that we are providing you with the
opportunities you need-not just to succeed,
but to totally crush it.
Another fabulous way to help get you ready for your breakout industry
debut is to form an SAE Collegiate Chapter at your school. Being an
active participant of a chapter will give you the chance to network
with your peers, faculty, and seasoned industry professionals; develop
valuable real-world skills; and increase your overall knowledge base.
An absolute must for chapters is to take advantage of the Industrial
Lecture Series (North America only, please). SAE will send one of the
industry's finest minds, for FREE, to your campus to provide a technical
presentation, participate in a shop or laboratory tour, or give you
practical advice about how to land your dream job. We have an amazing
lineup of speakers to choose from on Interested chapters should
email for more information.
One additional huge perk is that SAE reimburses dues dollars for
each student in the chapter to help support additional activities. At
SAE, we don't just say we care; this organization puts its money where
its mouth is.
Chapters are student-run, which means that all officers are elected
by their peers. Students in nearly 150 chapters around the world are
gaining valuable skills, helping to shape programming and manage the
finances of their SAE Collegiate Chapter. Serving as a chapter officer
will look great on a resume and give you a competitive edge in the
workforce. If you want that edge, then all you need to do is throw your
hat in the ring.
One important note: If you have a CDS team on your campus, that is
not the same thing. Chapters and CDS teams are separate entities. But
don't worry, you can have both! Contact today
to find out how you can start a new SAE Chapter in your life!

SAE International Sections

SAE International sections are local units comprised of 100 or more SAE International members
in a defined technical or geographic area. The purpose of local sections is to meet the technical,
developmental, and personal needs of the SAE members in a given area. For more information,
please visit

SAE International Collegiate Chapters

Collegiate Chapters are a way for SAE International student members to get together on their
campus and develop skills in a student-run and -elected environment. Student Members are vital
to the continued success and future of SAE. While your course work teaches you the engineering
knowledge you need, participation in your SAE collegiate chapter can develop or enhance other
important skills, including leadership, time management, project management, communications,
organization, planning, delegation, budgeting, and finance. For more information, or for how to
find your local chapter, please visit
