Science and Engineering South (more commonly known as the SES, and previously SES-5[1]) is a consortium of 6 public research-intensive universities in the Southeast of England, who pool their resources and facilities[2] to further research in the fields of science and engineering.[3] Its members accounted for a third of all EPSRC spending in 2013, when the consortium was formed.[4] King's College London joined the consortium in 2016, becoming the sixth member institution.[5] By March 2017, Queen Mary University of London had joined the consortium and the University of Cambridge, one of the founder institutions, had left.[6]

SES enables a network of high-performance computers available for research and scientific calculations across all its member universities, such as the 12,000 core IRIDIS Intel Westmere supercomputer cluster.[7]
