About Institution of Engineers Singapore (IES)
The national association of engineers in Singapore, The Institution of Engineers, was formally founded on July 1, 1966. The Government frequently requests input from IES, Singapore’s top engineering institution, about issues pertaining to professional engineering.
IES is strongly represented among the academic staff of Singapore’s top engineering universities. The IES arranges courses, seminars, and speeches for engineers and IES members to improve the continual growth of engineers in close partnership with the regional universities and polytechnics. The Institution has tight relations with regionally and globally operating professional engineering bodies.
In June 2006, IES attained full signatory status in the Washington Accord (WA) through its Engineering Accreditation Board (EAB). The admission gives IES the right to speak on behalf of Singapore, the first ASEAN nation to attain full signatory status in the WA, to evaluate education systems in accordance with the WA’s mutual recognition framework.
To increase the technical competency of engineers in Singapore and promote engineering to the community, IES established the Chartered Engineer Programme, the World Engineers Summit, and National Engineers Day. IES won’t rest on its laurels and will continue to fight to elevate the status of engineers and the engineering profession both locally and internationally by collaborating more closely with its stakeholders and giving back to society.
