SAE-A National Office News

SAE-A is excited to advise the industry of the renaming of Autoengineer Australasia to our new look magazine Vehicle Technology Engineer.

The re-branding of the journal is in line with the re-branding of SAE-A itself.  The Board of SAE-A, led by Executive Director, Natalie Roberts and President, Adrian Feeney have recognised that SAE-A is a much broader society than just automotive engineers.  We are relevant to the whole Mobility sector.

Following a strategic review of the Society in 2013 and in conjunction with support from the Board of Directors, SAE-A has implemented a number of exciting changes for 2014 and beyond, the aims being to strengthen the Society and increase the benefits of membership for both corporate and individual members.

Closer alignment with SAE International through embracing the Aerospace and Heavy Commercial Vehicle sectors, in addition to Australia’s unique engineering R&D and design strengths across the off-road and campers/trailers will ensure our current member base is more informed of opportunities and activities across the entire mobility spectrum in Australia.

Our big announcement is the introduction of professional training and development courses for mobility engineers.  SAE-A now has available a range of more than 300 courses that cover topics from engineering design, to leadership and quality training from a range of course providers in Australia and through our affiliation with SAE International.  Take the opportunity to review the available course content by visiting our Training Courses page for further information.

We will be ensuring that the traditional Automotive Engineer receives the services they have always sought, but we will be enhancing our activities to ensure other, non traditional member groups are equally catered for.

These are indeed changing times; times of opportunities and of growth.  We look forward to serving, meeting and talking to you throughout our various activities in 2014.
