Since 1927, the Society of Automotive Engineers – Australasia (SAE-A) has been the professional association for automotive and mobility engineers in Australasia.

Our vision is to advance the engineering profession across all mobility sectors including aerospace, automotive, rail, trucks, off-road and recreational vehicles.

We provide technical and skills training, and promote research and development in government, education and private sectors.

In a rapidly changing world, we provide policy and advocacy leadership on behalf of our Members in areas where the very definitions of mobility are constantly evolving.

Formula SAE-A:

You've never seen anything quite like Formula SAE-A – a competition where university students design, build and compete in their own Formula-style open-wheeled racing cars.

Formula SAE-A has been embraced by many Australian universities since its 2000 inception and forms part of the 12-month curriculum program.

Each December, thousands of students, volunteers and spectators join in as more than 30 university teams compete for FSAE- glory – and not just teams from Australia, but also from the UK, Germany, India, Japan, New Zealand and the USA.

FSAE-A brings together rigorous academic concepts with real-world experience (and a spirit of competition!) for students to make the connection between their engineering studies and their intended careers.
