Track 1: Sustainability through Technology


Engineering for a Sustainable Future

In November 2023, The Institution of Engineers, Singapore (IES) will host the World Engineers Summit 2023 in Singapore. The sixth biennial conference will continue to advance engineering-centric discussions on sustainable, climate-resilient and low carbon urban developments.


Themed “Engineering for a Sustainable Future”, WES 2023 will offer the international engineering community, along with scientists, academics, business leaders, policymakers and researchers, a timely opportunity to exchange knowledge and ideas. 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 Through Technology
  • Building a Resilient Future Against Climate Change
  • Future of Industry Sustainability
  • Smart and Sustainable Urban Mobility
  • A Greener and Renewable Built Environment
  • Pedagogy and Education Technology in Engineering Education

Join us at WES 2023 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 8 to 10 November 2023 with the theme “Engineering for a Sustainable Future”.


The conference will facilitate discussions on pressing current issues and new growth opportunities via six tracks: Sustainable through Technology, Building A Resilient Future Against Climate Change, Future of Industry Sustainability, Smart and Sustainable Urban Mobility, A Greener and Renewable Built Environment and Pedagogy and Educational Technology in Engineering Education


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 2023 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 2023.
