Who is the Society of Manufacturing Engineers? For more than 77 years, the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) has been the place Where Manufacturing Comes Together. Founded in 1932 with 33 members. Formed amid the Great Depression by a group of tool engineers and master mechanics, the organization looked to collaborate on how to build what would give the Motor City its name — the automobile. Today, SME is the world's leading professional society supporting manufacturing education. Through its member programs, publications, expositions and professional development resources, SME promotes an increased awareness of manufacturing engineering and helps keep manufacturing professionals up to date on leading trends and technologies. Headquartered in Michigan, SME has members in more than 70 countries and is supported by a network of hundreds of technical communities and chapters worldwide. SME's members hail from diverse manufacturing industries, including aerospace and defense, automotive and transportation, medical and many, many more.

Advantages For The Economy, The Community, and North Dakota Highly Skilled and Experienced Work Force –By developing a more highly skilled workforce, ND has the opportunity to draw more business to the region and attract our college graduates to stay in ND –With increased jobs and business expansion into ND comes increased attendance to our universities and therefore a feeder for the cycle of more students, more jobs and more money throughout ND It starts with creating a world class workforce sought after by companies nationwide. –If we provide the skilled workforce, companies will want to come to ND. –We have the work ethic and the potential to reshape the region and American Manufacturing. It takes a vision, some hard work, and dedication to the cause.
Why a Chapter in North Dakota? The student chapter at NDSU currently is advised by the professional chapter in Minneapolis, MN. Let’s keep it in house. By providing opportunities within ND, student are more likely to participate. Manufacturing is growing in ND and we have to keep up to be competitive. Getting the word out is half the battle. Through SME ND can post the results of cutting edge research and attract much needed attention to our universities.

Testimonials “Even though I am not an engineering student, the contacts I made through my student chapter of SME at UTSA helped me to obtain my current position as an Intern at IBM in Austin, Texas. This internship could turn into a long term employment opportunity for me. Manufacturing is not just machines and production; the support of manufacturing operations also holds enormous opportunities.” –Than Nguyen, IBM Intern, Computer Science Major –University of Texas at San Antonio “One of my great joys is providing an avenue for young students to explore their potential through cutting edge research in advanced manufacturing. Through the years I have been an officer in multiple SME professional chapters and currently serve as the advising professor for a student chapter. Through plant tours and seminars, SME provides exposure to the practical manufacturing environment that enables growth for students beyond that available in the classroom. Well rounded graduates make successful employees and members of society.” –Dr. Can Saygin, Assoc. Prof., Mech/Mfg Engineering Director – Manufacturing Systems and Automation Laboratory –University of Texas at San Antonio
