The Institution of Engineers, Singapore

The Institution of Engineers, Singapore was formally established in July 1966 as the national society of engineers in Singapore. IES is the premier engineering Institution in Singapore and is often called upon by the Government to provide feedback on professional engineering matters. With members hailing from all engineering disciplines and the private, public and academic sector, IES is well represented in the engineering domain.

Through close collaboration with the local universities, polytechnics and industry players, IES and its Academy organise courses, seminars and talks for engineers to advance the continuous development of engineers.

The Institution maintains close links with professional organisations of engineers regionally and throughout the world. IES also represents Singapore in the World Federation of Engineering Organisations (WFEO), ASEAN Federation of Engineering Organisations (AFEO) and the Federation of Engineering Institutions of Asia and the Pacific (FEIAP) in promoting goodwill and fellowship among all engineers in the region and internationally.

Through its Engineering Accreditation Board (EAB), IES obtained full signatory status in the Washington Accord (WA) in June 2006. The entry grants IES the authority to represent Singapore, the first country within the ASEAN region which has obtained full signatory status in the WA, to vet education systems under the WA mutual recognition framework.

To raise the technical competencies of engineers in Singapore and promote engineering to the community, IES has introduced the Chartered Engineer Programme, World Engineers Summit and National Engineers Day.
