According to David L. Schutt, Ph.D., SAE International's Chief Executive Officer, "The Ford partnership is a great opportunity to take engineering expertise from one of the most respected OEMs in the world and make it available to all automotive engineers through a selection of convenient online courses accessible anytime via SAE International's already-extensive Learning Center. Combining these highly valued courses with SAE Professional Development's broader portfolio of popular educational materials makes for a very compelling learning platform for engineers the world over. It definitely strengthens the essence of SAE International's lifelong learning mission."
