Society of Automotive Engineers(SAE)

Founded in 1905, the Society of Automobile Engineers (SAE) was developed to tackle the technical questions regarding automobiles of the time. In 1916, SAE was given the task of overseeing the standards of many industries, including aeronautics, tractors, and power boating. This led to the current name of Society of Automotive Engineers. Since then, SAE International has had a significant impact on the global engineering community. Today, SAE pursues the benefit of society regarding automotive industries through its global membership base.
