About Us

Background

SAE Malaysia (SAEM) is a non-profit engineering and scientific society dedicated to the advancement of mobility industry in Malaysia. The executive committee is a voluntary group and has dedicated their time and efforts purely on their passion and believes in this cause.

Formerly known as the SAE International Malaysia Section, SAEM is Malaysia’s leading resource for mobility technology. Membership to the Malaysian Section is automatic for all members of SAE International that reside in Malaysia.

The formation of SAEM was made possible by the interest shown by a small group of pioneering members who wanted to advance the mobility industry in Malaysia. In June 2000, a Pro Tem Committee was formed in order to spearhead the formation and recognition of the Malaysian Group as an official Chapter by SAE International’s Governing Body. With the dedication of the group, SAE International recognized the Malaysian Group officially on 1st September in the year of 2000.

Once that step was completed, the Malaysian Group was registered as a formal association with the Malaysian Registrar of Society (ROS) on the 18th of November, 2002 (Reg. No. PPM-006-10-18112002). The SAE International President, S M Shahed visited Malaysia in 2003 and inaugurated the Malaysia Group on the 20th of January, 2003. As the membership of the Malaysia Group increased, the Chapter was upgraded as a Section at the end of 2008.
