Welcome to SME's South Bay Area Chapter 153, a Platinum Chapter!
To develop America’s future workforce of manufacturing and engineering technologists by engaging them in critical reasoning and problem-solving skills through partnering industry with education.
The establishment of the "Educational and Professional Succession" senior SME chapter is to shepherd the associated student chapters and affiliates, providing a conduit of connectivity ensuring the success of the participants. The SME student chapters collaborate and support each other with mentorship from the senior chapter as the students ascend through education and into the workplace. This two-way collaboration fuels the educational and professional succession as we develop our manufacturing and engineering workforce.
