Andrew Davis Africa and Middle East Business Development Director at Dargavel attends 51st IMC Dinner at The Royal Lancaster Hotel, 3rd May 2019, celebrating the Institutes formation in 1944, 75 years ago. With over 250 guests from across the instrumentation industry in attendance it was and enjoyable and interesting event.
The IMC is an international network of professional engineers and scientists covering the measurement, automation and control field, increasingly collaborating with related organisations.
We aim to promote high standards of professional competence, to inform and support our members in their careers, to provide a bridge between academic research and industrial practice, to encourage students into engineering and science, to engage with the wider public and to inform government policy.
The Institute of Measurement and Control is recognised by Royal Charter as the professional body for scientists and engineers working in measurement, automation and control.
Founded in 1944, our members’ original priority was to maintain the national infrastructure and support wartime logistics.
During the post-war reconstruction years, attention shifted to developing new major infrastructure programmes including nuclear power, oil and gas, the transport network and major industrial and chemical facilities.
