In line with Aberdeen's growing importance as the centre for the UK's North Sea Oil & Gas development projects, the North of Scotland Section's meetings are enjoying increasing attendances - witnessing lively discussions and friendly networking between experienced and knowledgable engineering professionals focussed on all safety issues and interested in quality engineering practices for reliability.  Our programme has been compiled in order to cover a variety of key technical areas aimed at providing useful educational updates on latest technology for everyone aiming to maintain and progress their continuous professional development (CPD). 

Since 2013, we booked modern and comfortable meeting room facilities at Radisson's stylish Park Inn Hotel in Aberdeen city centre (location map).

We warmly welcome non-members (including students) to our meetings, please feel free to talk to us if you might consider InstMC membership & professional development.  We should be able to help with the process as well as provide advice.  InstMC members present at any event will be able to sign your application forms.
