SAMPE welcomes you to the Boston Chapter of the Society 
for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering.

 

The Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE®), an international professional member society, provides information on new materials and processing technology either via technical forums, journal publications, or books in which professionals in this field can exchange ideas and air their views. As the only technical society encompassing all fields of endeavor in materials and processes, SAMPE provides a unique and valuable forum for scientists, engineers, and academicians.

Join SAMPE® to learn more about engineered materials and their related processes and applications. Visit the International SAMPE® web site at  http://www.sampe.org/node/246

Check Calendar for current and monthly meeting notices of the Boston area Chapter. Find out more about being a member of SAMPE at Benefits

Meeting notices are posted to our members monthly by e-mail.  Members and those interested may request e-mail notices from our secretary

Co-sponsored Meetings

 

Boston SAMPE and ASM Boston co-sponsor many monthly meetings. We cross-linked our local web sites ito increase visibility for both chapters. We will increase our collaboration with future joint meetings.  Visit ASM International Boston Chapter's website at www.asmboston.org. Visit www.IMAPSNE.org; an organization dedicated to solving materials problems in electronics packaging.

 

Boston SAMPE and AIAA New England maintain close links. AIAA weblinks and meetings are posted on our links page.
