Institute for Science and Technology
The Science Technologists Association was formed in 1948 and granted a certificate of incorporation in 1954 to become the Institute of Science Technology (IST) and in October 2007 the IST became the Institute of Science & Technology. Its past traditions lay in the promotion and development of the science and practice of laboratory science technology.
The world of science and technology moves forward at a tremendous pace and is one of continual and rapid change. This modern technology-driven world has opened up many new and exciting fields of science. Increasingly, the multi-disciplined approach towards developing new and innovative solutions is changing the face of industry, research and education.
The IST itself has continued to move forward and expand its own horizons so that it can best position itself to support its members and their needs in the 21st century.
