At NSK, we support the next generation’s workforce through our annual sponsorship of the SAE Design Collegiate Competition program. This program is sponsored by the SAE Foundation. SAE is an international association comprised of more than 138,000 engineers and related technical experts in the aerospace, automotive and commercial-vehicle industries. Programs such as the SAE Collegiate Design Series give students the opportunity to apply what they have learned in class to designing, building and testing real vehicles. These design competitions provide students with real-world experience as well as great networking opportunities.
NSK has been a bearing sponsor to these collegiate teams for many years. At NSK, we strongly believe that these engineering programs help to shape the engineers of tomorrow by providing mentorship and product education. Students have the ability to see real world bearing applications and can see first-hand how different bearing specifications can dramatically improve performance.
We’re very excited to see what the students create this year and wish all the teams the best of luck in their upcoming competitions.
