Student Engineer Day gives collegiate students the opportunity to spend a day on the job shadowing the routines of a practicing engineer in the student’s field of choice. This is a unique opportunity for students to gain insight into the engineering field and for companies to discover future engineering talent. Although the day is broad in scope, it still allows for individualization as students are matched with engineers who have similar interest. Participating students and engineers are encouraged to attend the Chevrolet Bolt EV Vehicle Event at the San Marino Club in Troy that evening from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. Tickets are complimentary for Student Engineer Day participants and must be reserved by Tuesday, February 15.

Student Engineer Day may include a variety of activities, including tours, technical projects, hands-on experience and a chance to meet other colleagues. The format is flexible to meet the engineer’s schedule and is personalized to add a greater depth of experience for both the student and engineer.

This is open to SAE student members only. Students are responsible for their own transportation and for making the initial contact with their assigned engineer. Companies generally assume the cost of the student’s lunch. Participants will be notified by email prior to the event with respect to company/student placement.

GM Heritage Center Tour
8:30 - 10:00 a.m.
6400 Center Drive, Sterling Heights

SAE Detroit Section has arranged this exclusive tour, which normally is only open to GM employees, analysts and the media. The GM Heritage Center is not just a museum, but a cross between the ultimate automotive enthusiast's garage and a living repository of automotive history.

In 2008, General Motors opened the GM Heritage Center to coincide with their 100 year anniversary. This facility plays a key role in showcasing the company's rich history of success and its strong engineering capability.

More than 150 vehicle exhibits and historical memorabilia representing 10 decades are represented. The vehicle collection showcases a wide range of GM design, technology, and innovation. Guests will have the opportunity to see past and current concept vehicles, muscle cars, as well as historically significant vehicles form various eras. The center is always changing with vehicle exhibits being constantly freshened.

By highlighting the exciting designs, groundbreaking technology, and powerful brands that have comprised GM’s first century, the GM Heritage Center will help inspire new generations of enthusiasts and make the company even stronger in years to come as GM moves toward a second century of operations. This is evident by great designs, both legendary and recent, like the sixth generation Corvette, Cadillac 16 Concept Vehicle, and the Pontiac Solstice.

This is a great opportunity for SAE members to mentor a young professional, take advantage of the landscape, and experience the history.

The tour is limited to SAE members and their guests. Pre-registration is required.
