SAE Development Program

The Development Program is an underclassmen-oriented program that provides on-hands experience and background information related to the design and fabrication of engineering projects, specifically focused on the project teams here at A&M – Aero, Formula, and Baja.

The program hopes to introduce analytical and hands on experiences. These range from computer modeling to machining and welding that students do not typically get exposed to in a classroom.

While hoping to fill knowledge gaps students may have, each class or project through the Development Program is meant to allow students to build upon a basic foundation of knowledge in a particular topic or subject, not make them an expert in it. A calendar with meetings, classes, and projects will be posted soon at the beginning of the Fall semester!
