“SAE-A, Embracing all mobility sectors, including Automotive, Aerospace, HCV, Rail, Off-road, Aftermarket and Campers”


SAE-A is the world’s third oldest mobility society and was founded in Melbourne in 1927 to address the need for further education for all facets surrounding Automotive Engineering and now encompasses all mobility engineering industries in the Asia Pacific region.

The vision of the SAE-A is to advance the mobility engineering professions in Australasia through promoting the transfer of technical knowledge and skills, encouraging research and development in the private, education and government sectors and involving our members in the development and maintenance of Australasian and global technical standards.

The SAE-A is a non-profit organisation that works to serve the needs of its members and to promote the relevance of mobility related technologies to governments, industry and the community in general.
