Materials Science and Engineering Society

Everything is made from materials, so materials knowledge is valuable to each and every engineering discipline. Materials Science and Engineering Society is Wright State's chapter of Material Advantage. Material Advantage is a student society that allows members to also become members of The American Ceramic Society (ACS), The Association for Iron and Steel Technology (AIST), ASM International, and The Minerals, Metals and Materials Society (TMS). Membership is open to any student interested in materials, not just materials engineering majors.

Society of Automotive Engineers

The focus of the Wright State student section of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) is building vehicles for the SAE Aero Design and SAE Baja Design competitions. In SAE Aero Design students conceive, design, fabricate and test a cargo-carrying RC aircraft. The final designs compete with other universities' designs at a national competition. In SAE Baja Design students design, build, and test a four wheel off-road vehicle. The completed vehicle competes against other universalities vehicles at a national competition.
