Introducing the InstMC

The Institute of Measurement and Control (InstMC) is a Professional Engineering Institute (PEI) and international network of engineers and scientists working within the measurement, automation and control fields. We aim to promote high standards of professional competence by informing and supporting our members in their careers, as well as providing a bridge between academic research and industrial practice. The InstMC works in collaboration with related organisations, encouraging students into engineering and science, engaging with the wider public and informing government policy.
