SASE: on the National Level
The 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.
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 addition to professional development, SASE also encourages members to contribute to the enhancement of the communities in which they live.
SASE’s mission is to
- Prepare Asian heritage scientists and engineers for success in the global business world.
- Celebrate diversity on campuses and in the workplace.
- Provide opportunities for members to make contributions to their local communities.

SASE: at Drexel University
The Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers at Drexel University, better known as SASE Drexel, was founded in the Spring of 2013.
The purpose of SASE Drexel is to create an encouraging environment in which Drexel University students from the Asian community can develop professionally for careers in the fields of science and engineering through networking, skill-building, and campus and community involvement. This Chapter seeks to address the challenges that professionals of Asian heritage may encounter in their careers through workshops, seminars, and mentorship.
