Online Courses from Ford and SAE International

American carmaker Ford announced today it has partnered with SAE International for a series of online training courses to automotive engineers worldwide. As part of the partnership, there will be six popular online courses on powertrain and problem-solving topics offered. This is a way to extend Ford's engineering knowledge across the global industry, the carmaker says.

"Ford is excited about partnering with SAE International to provide the automotive industry with engineering training that supports improvements in product quality and powertrain innovation," said Barb Samardzich, Ford Vice President, Powertrain Engineering.

While certain Ford proprietary information was removed from the courses, they still have essentially the same content that the engineers from Ford and select suppliers have benefited in the past.

"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,” David L. Schutt, SAE International's Chief Executive Officer, said in a release.

“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," Schutt added.

More than 121,000 engineers and related technical experts in the automotive, aerospace and commercial-vehicle industries are a part of SAE International, that also comprises a charitable arm which supports many programs, including A World in Motion and the Collegiate Design Series.
