About our Section

The Scottish Section's event calendar provides a range of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) opportunities that take place across Scotland. Our events cover a number of specialisms and we like to vary the format by including paper evenings, showcase events, technical talks and social and networking events in our programme.  Our regular events include a dinner dance in September, Burns’ night dinner in January and charity quiz in March.

New committee members are always welcome. We meet bi-monthly in person and/or via teleconference. Please send an email to the above address if you're interested.


The Scottish Section Chair is Stuart McLeod, an Incorporated Engineer with IGEM with a B.Eng(Hons) degree in Mechanical and Power Plant Systems from Glasgow Caledonian University.

In his current role as Policy Engineer for Energy Assets Stuart provides assistance and guidance to other parts of the business, where required to provide clarification of the requirements of appropriate legislation, external standards and company procedures. In addition, Stuart has a proven track record in learning and deploying new Engineering and Management skills within the gas industry.

Stuart has been involved with IGEM since 2016 when I joined the Scottish Section Committee before advancing to the position of Vice Chairperson and in 2019 was a candidate in the YPPC competition.

In addition to Committee duties, Stuart is also an active participant in the technical standard panels involved with reviewing industry standards.

“When I first joined IGEM and the Scottish Section Committee I immediately knew that this is where I needed to be in order to fulfil my professional development in the gas industry. It is an honour and privilege to step into the Chairperson role where I shall endeavour to promote and ensure members gain the most from their membership as well as continue to develop the Scottish Section Committee through high quality events and workshops as I feel this is key for building and maintaining relationships between the professional and academic worlds”.
