Welcome to SAWE - Corporate Partnership Presentation

 

Opportunities Through the SAWE

An SAWE Corporate Partnership helps gain you access to the global engineering community. With chapters around the world, members whose companies read like a “Who’s Who” of advanced technological development, and yearly International and Regional conferences, the SAWE gives you a ready platform to access, dialogue, influence and collaborate with partners and markets around the world.

The SAWE also maintains ties with academia and research institutions, creating a forum to interact with, develop, and support the next generation of engineers, as well as be involved with the latest research developments.

Your Employee, Our Member

As a member of our organization, your employee is just as important to us as they are to you. Through the SAWE, we offer extensive opportunities for their professional growth and the development of their careers through networking, education, and participation.

Writing technical papers for SAWE conferences, involvement in our chapters, serving as a Society officer, or membership on our committees, these varied opportunities for professional development boost your employee’s growth, technical abilities, and maturity. Our broad-based Training Program, either online, at conferences, or at your company, gives further opportunities for formal education and development. And all the while they are networking with a global community of committed, enthusiastic, highly educated professionals. Growing your employees through the SAWE directly grows your company.

 

Our Committees, Where the SAWE Happens

Primarily focused on our annual International conference, the SAWE makes available to all members valuable networking opportunities through our committees. These promote professional development, technical exchange, and foster ongoing relationships. SAWE committees include:

  • Executive Committee
  • Board of Directors
  • Technical Committee
  • Standards and Practices Committee
  • Standing Committees
  • Appointed Committees

Executive Committee

The SAWE Executive Committee consists of all elected and appointed officers of the Society. They act as a Steering Committee to guide and carry out the President’s vision.

Board of Directors

Each chapter of the SAWE maintains a Chapter Director as one of its officers. The Director is the primary liaison between the chapter members and the SAWE Executive Committee. Together with the Executive Committee, the Chapter Directors form the Board of Directors (BoD), who are the governing body of the Society responsible for setting policy, voting on business, and overseeing our finances. The Board meets once a year prior to the annual International conference.

Technical Committee

The SAWE Technical Committee is responsible for developing the technical program at our annual International conference. This team seeks out authors and presenters involved in the latest developments and current state of MPE. This free and open technical exchange is the heart of the SAWE’s mission and charter. Our Technical Tracks define the breakdown and focus of the committee members.

    • Integrated Product Design
    • Product Life Cycle Management
    • Marine Systems Design
    • Ground Systems Design
    • Flight Technology – Manned
    • Flight Technology – Unmanned & Space
    • Advanced Design Characterization
    • System Verification

Standards and Practices Committee

The SAWE Standards and Practices Committee (SPC) is responsible for developing the documentation that will define the process of MPE for current and future generations. Our standards and practices are applicable not only to engineers, but also to managers and planners who are responsible for developing the schedules and manpower staffing needs for programs. Through involvement with this work, you can directly affect the efficiency, structure and direction of your company.

Standing Committees

In addition to the Technical and S&P Committees, other Standing committees of the SAWE help carry out our day-to- day work and keep our operations functioning, as well as help with outreach to students, academia, and the global engineering community. Our Standing committees include:

    • Academic Committee
    • Awards Committee
    • Conference Planning Committee
    • Constitution Committee
    • Financial Planning Committee
    • Membership Committee
    • Operations Manual Committee
    • Projects Committee

Appointed Committees

At any time, the International President may choose to appoint special temporary committees to carry out specific tasks. Work on these committees can be especially valuable to younger members as a short-term responsibility, to help give them experience with and a voice in the development of our Society and the MPE profession.

 

SAWE Conferences

The SAWE sponsors an annual International conference and up to three (3) Regional conferences each year. These forums allow for discussions of the current and future state of MPE both throughout our global organization as well as in more localized companies, areas and chapters. Regional conferences help feed papers and discussion points to the International, and presentations and material from the International can become a topic for workshops or discussions at the Regional level, for the benefit of members who could not attend the larger venue.

Your involvement at the International level not only grants you access to our membership as well as papers and ideas from the global engineering community, but also to students and members of academia. The International conference also affords you a speaking platform to market wares or share ideas directly with that community.

Special Attention, Personal Support

The SAWE is the leader in MPE around the world. We recognize that your goal is to be a leader in your industry. As part of your support of our organization, we endeavor to support you in reinforcing your position and furthering your business goals. Our staff will personally work with you to ensure your satisfaction and provide services designed to grow our Society and drive your business.

  • Ensuring easy access to SAWE benefits and services, as well as our full resources.
  • Coordinating being a conference exhibitor, whether at an International or Regional level.
  • Making use of our Training Program, whether at our conferences, online, or as personalized onsite training.
  • Assistance with submitting papers, access to our online technical database or involvement with our S&P work.
  • Ensuring smooth and open access to our SAWE leadership or committees as needed.
