The Manchester Association of Engineers or MAE was formally established on the 14th January 1856.
The original purpose of the Manchester Association of Engineers was set down as :-
The bringing together of those engaged in the design, direction or superintendence of engineering works and operations, for mutual improvement and assistance, increase of acquaintance and for promoting frequent exchange of opinion on interesting questions constantly arising from the progressive nature of engineering.
Throughout its life The Manchester Association of Engineers has included within its membership many eminent engineers and others representing the great and small in manufacturing, design and educational establishments of the area. It attracts many distinguished speakers and its transactions have been regularly sought by libraries and other organisations in many countries.
Our members are involved with and give lectures on many prestigious projects with subjects including Roller Coaster Design, The London Eye, Wembley Stadium, Welding In Construction and The Museum of Science & Technology to name just a few.
