The IET South East Scotland Network is led by local volunteers who come together to organise lectures and technical visits that provide opportunities to learn and meet new people.
We aim to raise awareness of science, engineering and technology in the local area, and promote membership of the IET.
All our events are open to the public and most are free of charge.

The SESAME section of IET South East Scotland Network organises a series of daytime activities with both a social and technical theme.
As our name suggests we arrange events within the South East of Scotland with a focus on being both a social and technical group.
All our events and other activities are multi-disciplinary, addressing a wide range of current engineering and technology topics of interest to both specialist and generalist alike.
Our talks, by an invited speaker, are held at Edinburgh Napier University Craiglockhart Campus with the presentation followed by afternoon tea and discussion with the speaker. They are open to the public and are free. Registration is not necessary but is helpful for us to manage the event. Our technical visits are generally within an hour’s drive of Edinburgh and normally involve meeting locally for lunch followed by the visit. Visit attendee numbers can be limited thus registration is essential. Visit attendees pay for their own lunch
