Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering Wikipedia
SAMPE was formed by nine Southern California aerospace professionals concerned with the lack of materials and need to economize. They formed a network of material and process engineers to provide a means for information exchange and to prevent the duplication of effort among companies working toward a common goal.
They formed the Society of Aircraft Material and Process Engineers in 1944. It was renamed as the Society of Aerospace Material and Process Engineers in the late 1950s as a result of the developing interest in space travel. SAMPE was later renamed as the Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering in 1973, to reflect membership growth beyond the aerospace industry.
SAMPE is a global professional member society, provides information on new materials and processing technology either via conferences, exhibitions, technical forums, publications, or books in which professionals in this field can exchange ideas and air their views. As the only technical society encompassing all fields of endeavor in materials and processes, SAMPE provides a unique and valuable forum for scientists, engineers, and academicians.
SAMPE sponsors an annual student leadership competition for student engineers. The SAMPE Student Leader Experience Award sends eligible students to the SAMPE International Spring Symposium & Exhibition to network and increase their understanding of the Materials and Processes community.
