Welcome to SME Seattle Chapter 39
an SME Platinum Chapter 

Empower our members to be lifelong learners, mentors, and leaders within their local manufacturing community. We believe in the power of mentorship as a bridge to connect next-generation engineers to the industry pioneers who came before them. 

A local, self-sustaining community of professionals and students who strive to promote manufacturing technology and education throughout western Washington and beyond.

SME Seattle 39 is committed to partnering with other local professional associations to offer the most diverse and engaging SME membership experience possible. We're proud to say that SME Seattle 39 holds joint events with Washington State Professional Engineers (WSPE), American Welding Society (AWS) Puget Sound Sector, Puget Sound Engineering Counsel (PSEC), and the Pacific Northwest Aerospace Alliance (PNAA).
