Transforming the Future through Engineering

While engineers may not be physically fighting COVID-19 on the frontline, they have been working hard behind the scenes to give the world the best resources needed for the battle. From advance robots, to medical devices which support healthcare solutions to increasing productivity in local farming to support food security, engineers have risen to the challenge with innovations that are making pivotal differences in tackling the pandemic.

This is why engineering is such a meaningful and rewarding career. Whether it is during global crises or normal times, the work of engineers contributes to the well-being of our health, econmy and society.

To help students discover the joy of being an engineer, The Institution if Engineers, Singapore (IES) organises the National Engineers Day (NED), an engineering festival for students, in colloration with our partners every year. The event celebrates the achievements of engineers and showcases the myriad of career opportunities made possible by an engineering education.

This year, NED will be held on 20 and 21 November 2020, coinciding with the year-end school break to allow more students to explore engineering beyond the classroom. Themed 'Transforming the Future through Engineering', the event will present an exciting line-up of talks and interactive workshops demostrating the ingenuity of engineers, advance technologies in various engineering disciplines and current and future career opportunities in engineering.

The Engineering Innovation Challenge (EIC), a mainstay of NED, will once again gather local and international students to pit their engineering brillance against each other. Under the theme 'Radiation 360°', students will put forth their best inventions, developed under the guidance of industry mentors, in public showcase. Jointly organised by IES and Science Centre Singapore, EIC will culminate in a prize presentation ceremony at NED. Join us to find out who the winners are - as they could well be Singapore's future engineering stars!

Due to COVID-19, this has been one of the most challenging years to organise NED but it has also brought out new creative ways in terms of event organisation. On behalf of the NED 2020 organising committee, I would like to thank all our partners for preserving with us to not just make NED happen, but making it the most technology-driven one ever.

We warmly welcome all students, parents, teachers and members of the public to join us not just be a spectator, but a player in transforming our future through engineering. See you in November!
