The highest grade of membership, this recognizes and honors long-term members who have made a significant impact on society's mobility technology through leadership, research, and innovation.
Established in 1975, the grade of Fellow is administered by the SAE Fellow Committee. Election to Fellow is an exceptional professional distinction bestowed on around 20 recipients each year. A distinctive Fellow pin is presented to the new Fellow at the annual Fellow dinner and a framed Fellow certificate is presented during the SAE Awards Ceremony. Both functions are held at the WCX World Congress Experience.
The SAE Board of Directors oversees the Fellows program and approves the nominations submitted by the Fellows Committee.
