  • Our Personal Mission

    AT UCSD SASE, WE STRIVE TO PROVIDE OUR MEMBERS AND AFFILIATES WITH THE ABSOLUTE BEST PROFESSIONAL OPPORTUNITIES POSSIBLE SO THAT YOU CAN ACHIEVE YOUR BEST AFTER YOUR UNDERGRADUATE CAREER.

    What is SASE?

    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. For more information, please refer to saseconnect.org.

    UCSD SASE

    SASE at UCSD was founded in June 2011 by an aspiring group of UCSD students. Since then, UCSD SASE has clearly established itself as one of the pioneering SASE chapters in the nation. In 2016, SASE UCSD was awarded Strongest Overall Chapter. UCSD SASE was chosen to host the West Regional Conference in 2013, 2015, and 2017

  • Good Things Come in Threes

    Over the past 5 years, UCSD SASE has been chosen to host the West Regional Conference 3 times - 2013, 2015, and now 2017. Throughout the years, UCSD SASE has continually strived for excellence in representing our community and bringing together hundreds of individuals who dedicate time to furthering themselves, and the world around them.

     

    The following statistics are derived from the 2015 West Regional Conference when UCSD last hosted the conference and reflect the type of students and professionals that may be in attendance this year. We anticipate 200+ students and professionals to attend the conference.
