Welcome to the Materials Society of Cumbria (MSC), the voice of the materials, minerals and mining community in Cumbria. MSC is affiliated to IOM3 and has been in existence since 1960. Although there are over 80 IOM3 members registered in the county, the Society draws its active membership primarily from industries on the West Coast of Cumbria. In addition the Society welcomes non-IOM3 members to all its events e.g. Nuclear Institute, IMechE, RSC etc. as well as anyone with an interest in materials minerals or mining.
