About To promote for the public benefit, by all available means, the general advancement of the science and practice of measurement and control technology and its application.
Institute of Measurement & Control cover
Mission It provides qualifications in a rapidly growing profession and is one of the few Chartered Engineering institutions which has long welcomed and qualified Incorporated Engineers and Engineering Technicians as well as Chartered Engineers.
Description The science of measurement is very old and has advanced steadily in the precision with which measurements may be made and by a variety and sophistication of the methods available. Since the early 20th century the rate of advance has been very rapid, in particular stimulated by the needs of industry. Control engineering has a much more recent origin; with the advent of the complex requirements, such as those of the process and aerospace industries, there has been a veritable explosion of new theory and application during the last 50 years. In this period there has been a correspondingly rapid increase in the number of people working in these fields.
Awards Callander Medal
