SAEINDIA is India's leading resource for mobility technology. As an individual member driven society of
mobility practitioners the ownership of SAEINDIA wrests with its members who are Individuals from the
mobility community, which includes Engineers Executives from Industry, Government Officials,
Academics and Students
SAEINDIA is an affiliate society of SAE International registered in India as an Indian nonprofit
engineering and scientific society dedicated to the advancement of mobility industry in India.
The officers in Section Governing Boards, Operating boards and Committees share the onus of its
efficient functioning here. All efforts are on now with a single minded purpose to propel the automotive
engineering profession by focusing on three trends occurring in the automotive industry today that affect
all automotive engineers and engineering societies.
The first of these trends is simultaneous engineering the integration of the roles of design engineer,
manufacturing engineer, supplier, marketer, and planner. The second trend is the increased reliance of
auto manufacturers on suppliers and design houses to support the design and manufacturing functions.
A third factor crucial to an internationalized auto industry is standards as communication, as a basis for
regulation, and as an aid to interchangeability.
Global standards have become a necessity, and the responsibility for developing them falls on
internationally recognized standards-writing groups and, ultimately, on the individual engineers who
participate in standards work.
During its hundred plus years, the automotive industry has achieved remarkable progress in both
production output and technological development. However, associated with this progress has been a
slight yet noticeable lag in the level of technological development as compared to the increase in
The founding principle of the SAE International is to unite scientific and technical staff to perform free
academic discussions, to dedicate themselves to the cause of prospering the science and technology for
automotive vehicles and to make contributions to speed up the modernization of automotive industry.
A great deal of effort has been expended to make these definitions suit this purpose. It is recognized
quite well by both SAEINDIA and SAE International which keeps on raising its bar on standards since
like linguistic dictionaries; even our efforts and purpose must be revised periodically to reflect current
usage and changing needs.
