Who is SME?
The Society for Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration (SME) is the world’s largest international society of professionals in the minerals industry. The SME membership is more than 13,000 strong, with members in nearly 100 countries and a staff of 42 located in Englewood, Colorado, USA. A member society of the American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical and Petroleum Engineers (AIME), SME’s roots date back to 1871 when a handful of coal mining engineers founded AIME. In 1949, AIME began publishing Mining Engineering magazine and it is the Official Publication of SME. Since its inception, SME has continued to evolve over the years to stay abreast of industry changes and to reflect the ever-broadening interests of its members. Professional development and information exchange have been watchwords at SME from the beginning. Nowhere is this commitment more evident than in the range of programs and services available to SME members. Publications, professional licensure, peer review of technical papers, college accreditation programs, meetings and exhibits, public education, and SME short courses are just a few examples. More than 60 local SME sections facilitate the exchange of information and increase grassroots participation in SME programs and services. In addition, with the SME Foundation and the creation of an international online digital library,, SME has considerable reach around the world with related societies. We encourage you to browse our website to learn more about how professionals around the world are benefiting every day from their membership in SME.
