Fellows (FInstMC) Election to Fellow is dependent on individuals successfully demonstrating, through technical or other roles, significant contribution to, and superior responsibility in, the industry. In view of this, candidates are expected to be over 33 years of age with more than 8 years’ acceptable professional experience, of which at least the most recent 5 years have involved responsibility in a senior corporate, or equivalent, capacity. Applications are normally required to be in writing, in keeping with a prescribed format, and are assessed via a Professional Review that, at the discretion of the Institute, may include an Interview.

Members (MInstMC) The Institute recognises that the automation and measurement and control industries embrace many individuals whose roles and responsibilities do not involve engineering and technology but who are nevertheless important to the industries. Applications are therefore welcome from individuals over 21 years of age who hold appropriate educational qualifications, or who have acquired acceptable professional experience, and who are working at graduate or equivalent levels of responsibility. Professional standing as MInstMC entitles them to participate fully in all activities and affairs of the Institute and to so contribute to its future development.

Through the Institute they may be also eligible for registration as Engineering Technicians (EngTech) with the Engineering Council. Members registered as Engineering Technicians
(EngTech) are accorded Technician Member (TInstMC).
