Welcome to the IST

The Institute of Science and Technology is the professional body for specialist, technical and managerial staff. Whilst we have been serving our members for over 60 years, our aim is to continually move forward and expand our horizons so that we can best position ourselves to support our members, and the wider technical community, in respect of their needs within the ever-changing and challenging 21st century.

We reach out to provide focused support for technical practitioners, specialists and managers in science, technology, engineering, digital, arts and media, working across a broad range of sectors including  industry, local authorities, schools, FE, HE, research/analytical/health facilities, government departments and many more organisations in the UK and overseas.

We are licenced by the Science Council to award to their science/technical registers at Chartered Scientist (CSci), Registered Scientist (RSci) and Registered Science Technician (RSciTech) levels, and also provide professional registration as a Registered Practitioner for technical personnel for whom the the Science Council registers are not appropriate, at MIScT(Reg) or FIScT(Reg) level.

Come and join us and help us develop and enhance career opportunities for the technical community. More information can be found in our Membership Section, or just drop us an email to memberships@istonline.org.uk.
