The Society of Environmental Engineers (SEE) is a professional Society which exists to promote awareness of the discipline of environmental engineering, and to provide members of the Society with information, training and representation within this field.

Latest News from our Journal

In July we will publish our next editorial supplement, EE Test Houses 2015. Company subscription packages are available that will include coverage in the supplement and online at To get involved simply fill in the pdf form here and send it back to us.


The June 2015 issue of our Membership Journal, Environmental Engineering has just been published. For a sneak peak click here. As well as a technology report looking at EMC testing and a focus on the aerospace and defence sector it will also include the Climatic & Vibration Testing 2015 Supplement.

We particularly like this video from Debbie Sterling, who is aiming to inspire the next generation of female engineers. Please watch it here


The contemporary environmental engineer

When the society was founded in 1959 environmental engineering meant the testing and development of products to survive in an environment. This has been the corner stone of the Society’s membership, company involvement and technological focus ever since. Nowadays environmental engineering also means ensuring that the environment can survive the product and our membership and technological focus is developing to reflect this. Society President Graham Couser shares his thoughts here.


Comms satellites complete in-orbit testing....

Environmental Engineering is our Membership Journal and is available to Members in both print and digital formats. The Journal will be published six times in 2015 with editions appearing in February, April, June, August, October and December.


The editorial content will include technology focuses (on cleanrooms and contamination control, design and simulated test, EMC testing, data acquisition, recording and sensors, NDT, climatic vibration and noise testing) and industry sector reports (automotive, medical, aerospace & defence, transport, electronics and telecoms and rail).


In addition Members will also receive five separate editorial supplements during 2015, covering EMC technology, Cleanrooms, Test Houses, Vibration and Climatic testing and Electronics.



Test House Directory 2015

Published in January 2015 and distributed to our Members with their Journal in February, this edition has more than 700 categories of test and over 120 companies listed.

The information is also available online at and new companies can appear here at any time during the year by filling in the pdf form here.

New co-operation with EMC UK
The Society is pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement with the organiser of EMC UK 2015 at Newbury in October. We will have a booth and look forward to meeting Members and potential Members there. For more info


The SEE Young Environmental Engineer of the Year Award 2014
Nominations are now invited for the 2014 Award. The nomination will be for a young “early career” engineer (normally under 30 years of age). The engineer may be in any employment category from Apprentice to Graduate. They must have undertaken or be engaged in an engineering project where their personal contribution has been significant.

The winner will receive £250 and a certificate and Society shield and will have Honorary Membership for 3 years. In addition the winning project will be featured in the Society’s magazine, Environmental Engineering as well as on the website.  For more information


The SEE in Hong Kong
We are pleased to confirm the details of the SEE Hong Kong Chapter Committee for 2014 - 2015 here.


New job section
The SEE website now has it's own job section. This can help Members if they are looking for a new job, checking out their market value or even looking to recruit some staff. Please look here for the latest in environmental engineering vacancies.




This is an online professional development system and is aligned with the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC) for EngTech, ICTTech, IEng and CEng, as well as other registration grades your institution may offer. You can measure and track your progress against the competence statements for the category of registration you are working towards. Records can then be sent to your institution as part of the professional review process. Engineers and technicians who have attained professional registration can continue to use to record their Continuing Professional Development (CPD). This service can help our Members work towards professional registration.

We are pleased to announce that there will be a new version of this service for mobile devices in Spring 2014
