K-State SAE Chapter

The Kansas State University Chapter of the Society of Automotive Engineers is dedicated to the education of students interested in the automotive or aerospace industry. The Chapter is predominately comprised of mechanical engineering students but membership is open to students from any major.

SAE allows us the opportunity to apply the knowledge we gain in the classroom in a real world setting. Involvement enhances your engineering credentials and is a great addition to your resume. SAE International sponsors numerous design competitions annually, and the KSU chapter sponsors several activities such as speakers and educational trips to help broaden students' knowledge and interest.

The KSU SAE Chapter sponsors three design teams:  SAE Aero DesignFormula SAE, and SAE Mini Baja. Participation of SAE Chapter members on team projects is  encouraged but not mandatory.
