SAE Industry Awards & Recognition

Perhaps the most satisfying recognition that an individual in any profession can achieve is peer recognition of accomplishments. This type of recognition is not only gratifying but frequently is the spur to even greater accomplishment, with the result being technological and, often, social benefits for the individual’s associates, employer and the general public.

Since its founding in 1905, SAE has established and operated programs which have recognized outstanding achievements in the design, engineering, and production of various forms of vehicles and their components, systems, and materials. SAE administers more than 60 award and recognition programs and co-sponsors three programs in cooperation with sister societies.
