Welcome to the London Branch
The fundamentals of the Institute of Corrosion is for the local Engineering Fraternity to gather, discuss the pro’s and con’s of the latest technology and network.
The branches are therefore located in strategic cities and grouped into six regions. Each Branch is made up with volunteers who work together to engage and provide support to the local engineering communities.
We also work with other Engineering Institutions to provide interesting and diverse topics for discussion at a local level, to include; IMechE, IOM3, Institute of Welding, Institute of Chemical Engineers.
Venue: Imperial College, London, The Skelton Building, Civil Engineering Department, Imperial College Road, off Exhibition Road, London, SW7 2AZ
London Branch meetings are held every 2nd Thursday in the month from September to May.
The evening events start at 18.00 with complimentary drinks.
The Technical Presentation starts at 18.30.
There is complementary buffet and a full bar from 19.30 onwards.
