Engineering towards a Post-Pandemic Sustainable World

In November 2021, The Institution of Engineers, Singapore (IES) will host the World Engineers Summit 2021 in Singapore. The fifth biennial conference will continue to advance engineering-centric discussions on sustainable, climate-resilient and low carbon urban developments.


Themed “Engineering towards a Post-Pandemic Sustainable World”, WES 2021 will offer the international engineering community, along with scientists, academics, business leaders, policymakers and researchers, a timely opportunity to exchange knowledge and ideas to support the world’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. It will focus on creating, mobilising and realising innovative engineering solutions to address challenges arising from the global crisis, create new economic frontiers and capture new opportunities in sustainability.


The summit will deliver a rich programme comprising keynote addresses by leading field experts and discussions along six tracks:

  • Sustainable Living Through Technology
  • Future Engineering and Industry 4.0
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Digitalisation
  • Sustainable Urban Mobility
  • Engineering Education
  • Impact of New Technologies on Productisation, Safety and Human Factors Practice

Join us at WES 2021 to be part of the action to drive positive change towards a better, sustainable future.


Emerson Digital Plant Experience

Join us for a session packed with rich technical content, featuring eminent experts as keynote speakers and renowned researchers, practitioners and policy makers showcasing the latest research findings and engineering innovations in support of a low carbon future and sustainable development.

As humankind grapples with unprecedented challenges unleashed by the COVID-19 pandemic, never before have engineers been more needed to work together to set the world on a strong course of recovery.


To spur the creation of innovative, sustainable solutions from international engineering communities at this time of crisis, The Institution of Engineers, Singapore (IES) will host the fifth biennial World Engineers Summit (WES) from 10 to 12 November 2021 with the theme “Engineering towards a Post-Pandemic Sustainable World”.


The conference will facilitate discussions on pressing current issues and new growth opportunities via six tracks: Sustainable Living through Technology, Future Engineering and Industry 4.0, AI and Digitalisation, Sustainable Urban Mobility, Engineering Education, and Impact of New Technologies on Productisation, Safety and Human Factors Practice.


We have designed a rich and varied programme comprising keynote speeches by leading field experts, insightful presentations and interaction opportunities to benefit delegates from different disciplines, industries and countries.


IES initiated WES in 2013 as a platform to address crucial issues confronting the world through engineering solutions. With the colossal magnitude of the issues at hand due to the pandemic, IES is committed to supporting engineers across borders to leverage on WES 2021 to formulate plausible next steps for a better well-being and a more sustainable global society.


Just as the pandemic has brought about permanent and far-reaching changes, engineers are the ones with the minds and means to drive transformation in all corners of the globe. Let us come together as engineers to turn this unprecedented crisis into new opportunities for future generations.


We look forward to seeing you at WES 2021.
