The University of Manitoba Society of Automotive Engineers student chapter  is a non-profit student organization comprised of four teams that design and construct vehicles for entry into international competitions. These design teams include the Aero, Baja, Formula Electric and Formula 1 teams. These teams produce an R/C heavy-lifting plane, an off-road vehicle, an electric open wheeled race car and a combustion-powered open wheeled race car, respectively, each year. UMSAE provides students with a hands-on engineering learning experience that is not available in a classroom setting. The design teams give students the opportunity to develop design, communication, teamwork and project management skills which are essential in the workplace. If you have questions about the organization, any of its teams or how to get involved, feel free to stop and ask anyone wearing a UMSAE shirt or check out our website. UMSAE is a technical society that allows students to go beyond textbook theory and apply actual engineering principles to the real world task of designing, building and testing vehicles. With over 100 members, UMSAE is the largest technical society at the University of Manitoba and is also one of the largest SAE International based student groups in the world. UMSAE participates in annual competitions hosted by SAE International in conjunction with industry partners. They compete with teams from countries around the world such as Japan, Germany, Austria, Australia and many others. 

This society allows students to apply their skills to all aspects of a real world projects including analysis, design, manufacturing, testing and marketing. Through this process, students gain valuable experience and develop professionalism, teamwork, communication, technical and project management skills which will further help them in finding a job and in pursuing their engineering career.
