What is SASE?

The Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers is a national non-profit organization that provides resources for professionals of Asian heritage to succeed in the global industry. The organization also serves as a platform for celebrating cultural diversity on campuses and workplaces, and as a community for members to network and connect with each other. SASE membership is open to all men and women professionals of all ethnic backgrounds.

Our Chapter


Our chapter's mission is to create a positive environment for Asian scientists and engineers to have a strong presence and to thrive in their respective industries.


The Northeastern University chapter of SASE (NUSASE) was founded in Spring 2013, by two senior Mechanical Engineering students. Our chapter gained university recognition as an organization beginning the following semester in Fall 2013, and has been growing ever since!

SASE National


The national SASE organization's mission consists of three core pillars:

  • 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.

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.
