South West

Welcome to the South West Branch

The South West Branch are a vibrant and diverse group from across industry, academia, and the military, as well as our retired members.  We typically meet on the first Wednesday of each month, either at the Plymouth University Marine Station at Artillery Place, Queen Anne’s Battery in Plymouth or at one of our Corporate member sites in the region.

The networking and learning opportunities at our Branch meetings are significant, so please come and join us!
