Chapter Level

The Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers (SASE) is dedicated to the advancement of Asian heritage scientists and engineers in education and employment so that they can achieve their full career potential in their respective careers.

SASE prides itself on being one of the fastest growing organizations at Purdue University. Founded in the fall of 2010, SASE develops individuals to be globally diverse and teaches students to integrate the values of different cultures within American business, allowing them to create their own unique identity. The main focus of SASE is to provide students with the tools to excel academically and professionally via workshops and programs that hone soft skills valued at the workplace and leadership traits key to effectively running an organization.

National Level
The national Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers (SASE) was founded in November 2007 to help Asian heritage scientific and engineering professionals achieve their full potential. Organizations existed for other affinity groups – The National Society of Black Engineers, the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, and the Society of Women Engineers – and there was a need for a similar organization where students representing all of the pan Asian cultures could connect and support each other.
