More than ten scientific-technical sections, having their equivalents in branches of SEP, group members of SEP from the same field of electrical engineering or similar interests. Sections as well as committees conduct activities connected with the development of their areas of electrical engineering.

Regular members of SEP can be engineers, technicians and students, meeting the criteria of SEP status.
