Mission Statement

The missions of the Society of Augmented Engineers and Scientists provides a certification related to the application of both engineering and science in the domains of physiological science and engineering, cognitive science and engineering, biomechanical engineering, and biomedical engineering as it relates to augmenting human performance and human capability to protect the public, the profession, and its professionals by assuring a rigorous standard of competency with ongoing training and certification.



We are happy to announce that The Society of Augmented Engineers and Scientists have officially been incorporated as of 18 June 2018. That means we will now be able to legally accept your application into the society and allow open testing for certification. We plan to open the first round of general testing on the 15th of October. We will begin accepting payments sometime in the next two weeks to give you access to study material so you are all well prepared for the exam.



After a great deal of work and rework for the Core PLUS exam and associated modules, we are happy to announce that we will be opening general testing to interested members. Having coordinated with the board members and many professionals, we have graded the first set of exams in our pilot testing. The first general testing group will be able to take their exam in early October. After the first group has been graded, we will open to all further candidate groups.

Please contact thomas.schnieders@saes-cert.org for questions and information regarding signing up for testing. Qualification information can be found here: https://saes-cert.org/how-to-qualify/

Nominations for the 2021-2025 board is now open and elections will be held in mid-2020. Nominees must be certified A.Eng or A.Sci members in good standing and have paid their annual dues at time of nomination.

About Us

The Society of Augmented Engineers and Scientists was originally developed by Dr. Richard T. Stone and Thomas M. Schnieders in the Fall of 2016. It is the belief of both of the founding members that the areas of engineering and science that pertains to augmenting performance and experience needs a rigorous with ongoing training to maintain and better the profession. The work to develop this certification and associated material has taken many years and countless hours of dedicated professionals. It is with this support that SAES has become officially incorporated as of 18 July 2018. The SAES team looks forward to working with the community of professionals and practitioners to make this certification a success and better ourselves, the profession, and before all else, protect the public.
