Philadelphia Post

Our Mission

Build leaders and lead collaboration among government and industry to develop multidisciplined solutions to national security infrastructure challenges.

About the Post

Welcome to the Philadelphia Post of the Society of American Military Engineers’ website!  The Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) is the only nonprofit professional engineering education organization that actively promotes the advancement of both individual technical knowledge and the collective engineering and scientific capabilities of governments, the uniformed services and private industry.  

Our goal is to unite public and private sector entities and individuals in the A/E/C community to prepare for and overcome natural and man-made disasters, acts of terrorism and improve security at home and abroad.

The Philadelphia Post accomplishes this goal locally by hosting monthly luncheon meetings and other professional/social activities attended by members of local government, military, private industry, students and other interested parties. These meetings are announced via our e-mail distribution list. The Philadelphia Post is supported by the national Society of American Military Engineers and publications such as The Military Engineer.
