Benefits of Materials Australia Membership
The membership comprises both individuals and companies in Australia and overseas who are involved in materials science and engineering under the auspices of Materials Australia. Members include manufacturing technical staff, professional engineers, academics, research scientists, technical sales staff and students.
Materials Australia covers technical topics related to any aspect of materials from traditional heavy metals to new and emerging materials technologies. Materials include polymers, nano- and microtechnologies, bio-technology, alloys, ceramics, metals and composites to name a few, and their engineering applications.
Membership of Materials Australia enables professionals working in the materials environment to network and engage with each other and to bring together under one professional body the full range of materials technologies.
There are two kinds of memberships to Materials Australia, Individual and Company. Individual Members can join Materials Australia as a Student Member, Standard Member, Retired Member or a Certified Materials Professional (use of post nominal CMatP). The CMatP Track is a membership for those who are seeking to become Certified Materials Professionals.
Our Corporate Members play an important part in the future of Materials Science and Engineering and in 2009 we launched new benefits for our Corporate members.
