Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers

The Chicago Section of the STLE is the largest in the organization with close to 350 members.

We are fortunate to have a vibrant community of engineers and scientists that participate in numerous technical meetings, manufacturing tours and social events throughout the year.

The active Executive Committee, with its numerous sub-committees, organizes activities such as:

  • Monthly technical meetings (showcasing the latest developments in tribology, chemistry and engineering)
  • Joint technical sessions with organizations such as The Vibration Institute
  • Education Program (2 days of seminars themed annually toward the needs of members)
  • Annual Golf Day
  • Directory (showcasing the years events, members from the Section and local sponsors)
  • Social Evening (special events for members and spouses)
  • Scholarship & Science Fair Program (activity aimed offering  scholarships for graduate students interested in pursuing a career in tribology and lubrication)
