Who We Are

    The ISA South Jersey Section was organized in 1968, and was an outgrowth of the Philadelphia Section. Its purpose is to establish and maintain a forum for South Jersey engineers and technicians interested in the advancement of the theory, design, manufacture, and application and use of sensors, instruments, computers, and systems for measurement and control. To continually excel in the provision of services to the Society and to the Industry.


    Accomplishments include significant input into Society's technical, research, and standards committees, including Section members assigned to national and district committees. The South Jersey Section annually sponsors local meetings and seminars on instrumentation and systems and other technical issues, holds Basic and Advanced Level I, II, and III training courses on instrumentation and systems, and provides partial scholarships to deserving engineering students at local universities.
    The Section holds 7 monthly meetings a year beginning in September, the majority of which are held in the Cherry Hill, NJ area. The remaining meetings are social functions which include Field Trips, Joint Section Meetings and Annual Golf Outing.
