About Us - A brief history of who we are.

The Society of Automobile Engineers (SAE) was founded by a small group of industry pioneers in 1905. The fundamental purpose of the Central Illinois Section is to generate local activities that extend SAE benefits to members in their area. To achieve this, vehicle meetings are presented each year as well as various technical meetings, field trips and social events. To promote awareness for future members, the Section provides support to SAE student chapters at eight local universities. Additionally, individual members are active participants in educational programs for K-12 students.
