About Us

The West of Scotland section serves InstMC members working, studying or living in the west of Scotland (encompassing Argyll and Bute, Inverclyde, Renfrewshire, Dunbartonshire, Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Ayrshire and Dumfries and Galloway). Our section is run by members for members, helping to provide a local face to the Institute's activities. We provide help in becoming a member, professional registration (CEng, IEng or EngTech) and run periodic technical and social events.


Congratualtions to our newly appointed section chairman, Billy Milligan. Billy took over from Tom Ryan at the 16-Jan-17 Annual General Meeting.

All InstMC members have access to Microsoft Office 365 and an e-mail account in the form your.name@instmc.org. If you would like a reminder e-mail with instructions on setting this up, please send an e-mail to communications@instmc.org.

If you're interested in professional registration through the Engineering Council and don't know what's involved, contact the committee for further details.
