GET INVOLVED IN SAE-A
Divisions - Volunteer - Sponsorship - Board & Committees - Editorial - Hosting Events & Functions
Professional and personal demands often place limitations on volunteer participation, but SAE-A has very interesting volunteer opportunities ranging from short-term tasks to positions with varying term or time commitments. Meeting colleagues from your local region is the most accessible way to get involved with the Society. The Society exists for its members and is run largely by its members. The more that you engage with the Society’s events, activities and networks, the better the Society will become and the more rewarding your experience will be.
Currently, SAE-A has an established Victoria Division. New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia and Young Engineers Divisions are in the progress of being established. A Division can be formed in any geographic region where a sufficient concentration of members and a willing and energetic committee can be formed. The Young Engineers Division is structured to include members from all States.
The key goals of an SAE-A Division is to -
• Host and run events that provide interesting and engaging content to members
• Promote the Society to potential members and the community
• Be a local point of contact for Society members and the community
• Encourage other Society members to join their local division committee.
If you wish to become involved with a Division either as a volunteer, host a technical event, facility tour or seminar at your workplace, please contact the National office on (03) 9676 9568 or register your interest here.
Remember that engaging with your local division will make your SAE-A experience richer

What is Formula SAE-Australasia?
Formula SAE-Australasia is an engineering education experience for university students at the highest level. Run by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), Formula SAE is an international engineering competition centred on the design, construction and racing of a prototype Formula-style vehicle. The competition provides students with the opportunity to develop their skills in design, management, manufacturing, communication, research and business operations in a real world environment. Static and dynamic events are used to judge teams, and provide them with an overall score.
