The mission of ICTa is to promote heavy clay technology on a UK and international basis and to provide its members with opportunities to broaden their professional outlook, skills and qualifications, thus enabling them to face change with greater confidence and thereby help secure a dynamic future for the heavy ceramics industry.
ICTa will achieve this by providing members with a wide range of technical meetings and events, education and fellowship and with well-informed communications.
Through its links with the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, ICTa can offer professional qualifications accredited by both the Engineering Council and the Science Council for a range of professions from technician/operator to senior management level.
At this time, all of our meetings are being held online via Zoom. To see further details, please go to the Meetings tab above.
SMEA is the voice of the materials community in South Yorkshire, with an extensive programme of activities centred on lectures, visits and encouragement of young materials scientists. Non-members welcome
