DIAGS – A Community For Diagnostic Engineers

Refinery where Diagnostic Engineers work

The Institution of Diagnostic Engineers otherwise known as DIAGS was founded in April 1981 by the late Dr. Ralph Collacott. The Institution was founded to promote the education and professional development, with recognition to include all Engineers in a community dealing with Diagnostics, fault finding and condition monitoring in all areas of industry. 

We define the role of a diagnostic engineer as any person capable of contributing to the art or science of determining the existence of a problem in a machine, plant, system, or structure and/or appraising the cause(s) of a failure, which may have taken place and/or assessing the condition or vulnerability of such machine, plant, system or structure either during use or while under development.

Diagnostic Engineering

It is accepted that through a diagnostic capability or a special knowledge of a failure and deterioration modes, reliabilities and hazards a person will be able to contribute to a satisfactory assessment of the causes of a defect and able to contribute to the identification of remedial action to cure the defect and prevent failure.
