Scottish section
Welcome to the IRSE Scottish Section web page - we hope it provides useful information on the activities of the IRSE in Scotland for both locals and visitors alike.

Meetings and Events
The Scottish section of the IRSE is very active throughout the year and provides a range of lectures, site visits and social events open to all members and guests of the IRSE in Scotland. In addition we support and encourage the general aims and activities of the Institution including such activities as facilitation of IRSE Exam Study Groups at the Siemens offices in Glasgow. Please contact for more details.

The section committee meets monthly from September through to April each year with meetings coinciding with lectures or other key events on our programme. Section meetings are open to all members and for details of dates and venues please contact the section secretary.

Our normal location for lectures, details of which can be found in the Programme of IRSE Events published annually by the IRSE, have recently changed location from The Iron Horse Bar, 115 West Nile Street, Glasgow, G1 2SB to Sloans Bar & Restaurant (1st Floor Dining Room), 62, The Argyll Arcade, Argyll Arcade, 108 Argyle St, Glasgow G2 8BG​.

Some lectures are hosted jointly with other bodies such as the PWI and guests and non-members of the IRSE are most welcome to attend.Traditionally we host our Annual General meeting during April each year with a pub quiz to encourage healthy attendance.

Details of technical visits and other activities can be found below or by contacting the section secretary. With the permission of the guest speaker, the presentations from some lectures may be available in the "more information" panel on the right hand side of this page. Publicity posters for up and coming lectures and events can also be accessed from this panel
