SAMPE is a general organization devoted to the promotion of technical excellence in materials and process engineering, totalling around 15,000 engineers, technologists and materials scientists.
It was founded in 1944 by Californian aerospace engineers with the goal to build a professional network and improve the exchange of technical information. Since those times, SAMPE has spread all over the world and is divided in about 40 chapters.
In Europe we have activities in more than 25 countries, organized predominantly in national associations like France, Germany, Switzerland, Israel, Italy, Finland, Ukraine and sometimes also in international groups like Benelux, UK & Eire and Iberica.
Operating under the umbrella of SAMPE Global are four regional branches of the association: SAMPE China, SAMPE Europe, SAMPE Japan, and SAMPE North America. Each organization serves its region with membership services, events, and networking opportunities.
