Engineering Graduate Society

We are proud to have a vibrant community of researchers. The Engineering Graduate Society or the EngGradSoc (as its popularly called) is our researcher-led community, for the all the researchers (postgraduates and post-doctoral) based in the School of Engineering. 

The EngGradSoc is for all researchers across the School of Engineering, including postgraduate students and post-doctoral research associates. You are automatically a member of the Society - there is no joining fee - and there are events throughout the year for you to get involved with.

The ENgGradSoc's aim is to bring together researchers from all of the School's Research Institutes, in joint training, skills and knowlege sharing and social activities that enhance your Edinburgh experience. There are events throughout the year for our researchers to get involved in. These include PhD experience talks (e.g. 'Going Abroad during the PhD'), technology workshops (e.g. on Raspberry PIs), sharing research skills sessions (e.g. MATLAB, Linux, LaTeX, LabView etc), industry visits, talks, monthly coffee breaks, board-game nights and pub tours, or sightseeing trips once every three months.

The committee of the society comprises one representative from each Institute and changes annually. The committee always looks for new people with fresh ideas.

If you would like to find out more, or perhaps volunteer to help on the Committee or with an event, please contact the President: EngGradSoc@ed.ac.uk.
