About Us


The InstMC Central Scotland section was created January 2021 following a merger of East and West of Scotland sections.  Our goal is to develop the network of EC&I engineers across Central Scotland and enhance the exposure of new technologies, process control and measurement techniques.  We have a variety of experience across our members and committee, with the ability to support those working towards professional registration.  We are always keen to hear from EC&I engineers and technicians interested in joining regardless of current experience level.


InstMC Central Scotland Section have recently sponsored CISMA - https://cisma-colloquia.com/ - for their entry to the Edinburgh Science Festival.


Past events

Since our formation in January, we have held online webinars on Optical Sensor Measurements (Gatner Instruments) and on a Green Energy Hydrogen Project (SGN).

Before the Coronavirus pandemic, WoS/EoS sections have attended site tours at Hunterston B Power Station, Howden Compressors, Wellpark Brewery, Stewart Buchanan Gauges, the Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC).  We hold an annual dinner event, the next being lined up for Friday 25th March 2022 at the Merchant’s House, Glasgow.
