Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE)
The Society of Automotive Engineers at IIT Kanpur is a collegiate chapter of SAE India. It was established in January 2011 by the collective efforts of a group of students with a strong urge to complement the theoretical knowledge imparted in classrooms, emphasizing on the practical aspects of engineering. Their idea was to develop an automotive culture revolutionized the institute and SAE IIT Kanpur started with an initial strength of over 150 student members.
One of the most important qualities of SAE IIT Kanpur is its diversity with students from almost all departments of the institute. Any passionate student of the institute can be a participating member of this society. It provides a platform for students to share and increase their engineering know-how through increased interaction between students at all levels via group activity, lectures, workshops, brainstorming sessions and many institute level competitions.
