UNC Charlotte has its own student chapter of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). Together, students run race teams to conceive, design and fabricate high-performance vehicles. These vehicles will be planned and constructed with the cooperation of the members and the compilation of their engineering knowledge. This student organization here at UNC Charlotte will provide students with the knowledge, skills and level of professionalism to be successful, not only in the automotive world but in the engineering world as well.
