THE INSTITUTE OF MATERIALS
The Institute of Materials (IoM) is the professional body of the materials science and engineering community. An elected council governs it and with a membership of over 18,000 individuals throughout the UK and Europe, the loM represents a formidable range of expertise across the disciplines of ceramics, metals, polymers and composites.
The IoM exists to promote and develop all aspects of materials science and engineering as a leading authority in the worldwide materials community and to provide a first-class service to members, customers and industry, supported by a well-trained and motivated staff.
INDUSTRIAL AFFILIATE SCHEME
The aim of the Industrial Affiliate Scheme (lAS) is to bring the benefits of membership of the Institute of Materials to companies as a whole, giving rapid access to the Materials Information Service (MIS) who assist with solving materials and related problems. Company membership of the IoM through the Industrial Affiliate Scheme, launched in 1996, now stands in excess of 200 members.
The lAS membership drive was originally focused on small and medium sized companies. This is still the case, but at the same time the lAS has broadened its appeal and now includes several household names amongst its members. including ABB, Lotus and Nokia UK Limited.
WHO SHOULD JOIN?
The Industrial Affiliate Scheme is geared to companies who do not have specific in-house expertise, and need assistance with their materials problems through the Materials Information Service (MIS) and if required a Materials Adviser with specialist knowledge in their field.
Industry can access the resources of the Institute and MIS by joining the Industrial Affiliate Scheme. which provides low cost company membership (subscription charges are detailed below).
