Chain 2017 is an initiative that has brought together the young member volunteers of numerous professional institutions and engineering organisations such as the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), Manchester Association of Engineers (MAE) and the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS).

We aim to host a conference to inform and inspire developing engineers from across Greater Manchester. Specifically, we will target those aged 15 to early 30s, across all stages of engineering, from students and apprentices through to graduates and those aiming to gain chartership.
