Society of Automotive Engineers


About Us

We, the student chapter of the Society of Automotive Engineers, strive to provide students with hands on experience in engineering, business organization, and leadership in the automotive field. The goals of UD's chapter of the Society of Automotive Engineers are outlined below: We want to create a community of individuals who all share the same passion in automobiles and the automotive industry by providing professional development and networking opportunities for students looking to pursue a career in the automotive industry. We also want to demonstrate UD culture and beliefs to our relationship with club affiliates while competing in national competitions with other universities. Finally, we want to exemplify respect and sportsmanship during off-campus opportunities that will show students more about the automotive industry and host on campus activities for the student body and community to enjoy.
