Membership

A large number of Scientists, technologist and professionals are in contact with ECSI since several years. In order to and provide a forum to the electrochemists to keep abreast of new developments and solve electrochemistry challenges, members deliberate and collaborate to come up with feasible solutions. This forum will address various technical problems related to electroplating, metal finishing, powder coating, and chemical analysis and environmental issues. All such units are encouraged to become members of ECSI. The members will be able to enjoy all the benefits, the professional society can offer such as access to library, consultancy, reduced registration fees for refresher courses, etc. The industries can also nominate their staff as a liaison officer.
