About WES 2019
In August 2019, Singapore will host the World Engineers Summit 2019 – Engineering Future Cities – Harnessing and Managing Technologies to Improve Quality of Life. The fourth biennial conference will continue to champion engineering-led discussions on sustainable urban development harnessing and managing today modern world technologies to improve quality of life, to deliver depth and breadth to conference delegates.
Rapid urbanisation is elevating energy demand to unprecedented levels, with cities accounting for about three-quarters of the world’s energy consumption. The ability of cities to break away from energy-and carbon-intensive development and move towards high energy efficiency and sustainable practices will be a significant factor in shaping global economic security and climate resilience.
Organised by The Institution of Engineers Singapore, WES 2019 will be a focal point for exchange between leading global experts of the latest progress in urban energy systems and policy options in the areas of transport, building, industry, environment, power generation and energy storage. It will present the latest research findings and engineering innovations in support of a low carbon future and sustainable development. It will also provide the platform for engineers to turn talk into action. We want to invite you to leverage on WES 2019 to set your organisation apart as a leading sustainability advocate. Having established itself as one of the most significant global conferences focusing on driving sustainability through engineering, this WES conference will once again reach out to engineers and scientists from multiple disciplines, energy specialists, urban planning specialists, environmental and water specialists, academic, financiers, manufacturers, policy makers, researchers and business leaders from diverse industries around the world.
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.
In August 2019, The Institution of Engineers, Singapore, will once again host the World Engineers Summit (WES) with the theme ‘Engineering Future Cities – Harnessing and Managing Technologies to Improve Quality of Life’. Since its launch in 2013, the biennial WES has earned its place in the international community as a vibrant platform for knowledge exchange, sharing of experiences and global networking on the role and advancements of engineering in the service of mankind.
A focal point for ideas, research findings and best practices on climate change, WES 2019 will address a range of critical issues in engineering and sustainability. The conference’s significant line-up of world-renowned experts and great diversity of quality technical presentations will fully capture the latest challenges, insights and solutions facing the future cities now. Its plurality of interests and perspectives will make it the focal point for new ideas and directions for the building of efficient sustainable urban development.
If you are an engineer, a scientist, a researcher, an urban planning specialist, an environmental and water specialist, an academic, a financier, a manufacturer, a policy maker or a business leader, we welcome you to join us at this Summit.
Be part of the global engineering and sustainability game-changing force that will shape the future of the cities and our lives.Associate Professor Lim Kok Hwa
