Science and Engineering South (more commonly known as the SES-5[1]) is a selected consortium of 5 public research-intensive universities who pool their resources and facilities[2] to further research in the fields of science and engineering.[3] Its members account for a third of all EPSRC spending.[4]

SES-5 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.[5]
