Get Involved

UKSEDS run a variety of events and competitions over the year, bringing together students and industry professionals throughout the country to discuss, learn, and network. Check out the timetable below for more details of what’s on, or subscribe to Ecliptic, our email newsletter, at the bottom of the page to stay up-to-date with our events.

You can also help UKSEDS by hosting an event, or by volunteering with us.
