The idea of formation of an Indian Institute for metallurgists was conceived as early as in 1945. This was possible by the efforts of a few metallurgists, who realised the need for an adequate body for professional metallurgists in India. During that time many of the technical informations were not easily available in India. Communications with other countries were difficult because of the war. The ordnance factories and many other industries involved in manufacture of various products for the war efforts were greatly handicapped because of the non-availability of technical information on metallurgy. The Inspectorate of Metals in the ordnance factory was the only reliable organisation who could undertake investigations on metal products.  

The Institute is managed by the IIM Council which is appointed by the members at the Annual General Meeting. For assisting in efficient functioning, the Council appoints various Sub-committees to monitor membership, finance, education & examinations, international relations, Chapter relations, publications, IIM awards & honours. 

Presently, IIM has 52 Chapters situated across the length and breadth of the Country to carry out the activities, to reach out to all the members and to ensure their participation and functioning in conjunction with the three divisions namely, Ferrous Division, Nonferrous Division and Metal Science Division.  .....more
