Young Member Committee
The Welding Institute

Younger Member Network

The Younger Members of The Welding Institute are dedicated to developing our next generation of engineers. They do this by participating in outreach activities, (many of our Younger Members are STEM Ambassadors), and by promoting the benefits of professional development, through Professional Membership and Registration. 

Our Younger Members' strive to look beyond welding and joining in their simplest forms, and in doing so promote a multitude of engineering technologies and principles surrounding these processes to pupils from primary schools right through to students in university programmes, such as:

  • non destructive testing

  • structural integrity

  • materials

The Younger Members' Committee (YMC) is part of the Professional Board of The Welding Institute
