Applying for membership
The Institute has a comprehensive range of membership grades for individuals engaged in both technical and non-technical occupations and for all stages of their careers in the automation, instrumentation, control and related industries.
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.Fellows and Members with appropriate educational qualifications and who can demonstrate acceptable technical and professional competence may via an acceptable application also be eligible for the title ‘Chartered Measurement and Control Technologist’
Associates Associate membership is normally offered to individuals who are employed in measurement and control occupations but whose levels of technical qualifications and responsibility otherwise preclude them from admission to the above grades of membership. 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).
