Outcome of 2017 Election from Schools to Senate
At close of the elections on Wednesday 31 May 2017 approximately 30% of the Electoral Roll had voted; the School of Textiles and Design and Edinburgh Business School had no vacancies or retiring Senators this year, and therefore did not vote.

|Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure and Society||
Dr Gina Netto
Dr David Jenkins
Prof Patrick Corbett
|Engineering and Physical Sciences||
Dr Jim Cameron
Dr Thomas Ward (Malaysia)
Dr Mehdi Nazarinia (Dubai)
|Mathematical and Computer Sciences||
