The Watt Club

Founded in 1854, The Watt Club is understood to be the oldest alumni association in the UK. Lifetime membership is automatic upon graduation from Heriot-Watt, and is free to all graduates of the University.

Excellent graduate opportunities
We work to provide our alumni with opportunities throughout their lives through several initiatives including a number of continuing professional development courses and networking opportunities.
One of the founding objects of the Watt Club was '... to sup together on the anniversary of the birth of James Watt', and so every year we encourage our members across the world to take part in #GlobalWattDay on 19 January by raising a toast, taking a photo and sending it to us via our social media channels - Facebook and Twitter.
We hope you are able to join us in this annual global celebration, and we look forward to seeing your photographs.
