Thurai Rahulan, Royal Aeronautical Society Manchester Branch  

The Manchester Branch of the Royal aeronautical Society (RAeS MB) was formed in 1930 and during most of its history was based at the A V Roe/BAe Woodford site. The Branch events now take place mainly at the University of Salford and the University of Manchester. This Branch played a key role when former Salford student Nicholas Valentine founded the CHAIN event a few years ago and has continued to provide strong support in the form of stalls to distribute promotional materials, provide unbiased advice to all visitors, and speakers to enthuse all in the audience especially the youngsters.

Not only has CHAIN become an annual event at Manchester but has now been held in other parts of the country. The Branch Committee very much appreciates the value CHAIN brings to all aerospace professional and intends to continue supporting it well into the future

Husain Bensaud, Institution of Structural Engineers Lancashire and Cheshire Young Members

Chain has become one of the highlight events the IStructE L&C Young Members participate in. As a group of young professionals and students, we are eager to communicate and establish relationships with peers from the various engineering disciplines and institutions. Chain has given us a platform to do just that. We have played a key role in organising the event in Manchester in previous years, and we very much see the value in continuing to do so for years to come

Jamie Pilgrim, Nuclear Institute

The Nuclear Institute have attended the Chain series of events for the past four years. We’ve always found them to be good events, linking aspiring scientists and engineers with industry leaders. The Chain events offer an opportunity not catered for by the other STEM events by targeting a slightly older (sixth form, university students) demographic, with a focus on industry sectors and careers

John Platt, Institution of Power Engineers

As a professional engineering institution, the Institution of Power Engineers is acutely aware of the need to ensure a flow of new talent into the profession and is committed to encouraging young people to consider a career in engineering and to supporting young engineers in developing in their chosen careers.  We are therefore delighted to support the CHAIN event in its work amongst students and young engineers.  The CHAIN event is a truly inspiring initiative run by young engineers, for young engineers, the events – which are open to all and free of charge to attendees – are hugely popular and attract the enthusiastic participation of engineering students and those who are just enquiring about an engineering career.  Well done to the organisers and we wish the CHAIN event every success for the future.
