How will Singapore’s transition to a circular economy affect the way we live, work and play? How are engineers playing a key role in this transition and what career opportunities in engineering are opening up in an increasingly circular world?
Join National Engineers Day (NED) 2023 to not just gain useful insights into these topics but discover ways to be a part of the exciting circular future.
Embracing the theme “Shaping a Circular Economy through Engineering“, NED 2023 is designed for students and the general public to experience the transformative power of engineering in building a more resilient future. It focuses on showcasing the ingenuity of engineers, contributions of engineers to Singapore’s growth and latest career opportunities in engineering.
From 15 to 26 August 2023, the 14th NED will present an extensive series of in-person and virtual activities, from talks to guided tours between 15 to 23 August.
NED 2023 will once again host the Engineering Innovation Challenge (EIC), a nation-wide competition whereby students from secondary schools to universities will gain hands-on experience in developing innovative solutions to address real-world problems. Supported by the Ministry of Education and industry partners, the ninth EIC will see participants developing solutions under the theme ‘Engineering for Resilient City Living’.
The final judging of the EIC will take place on 24 and 25 August 2023, where 82 shortlisted teams across four categories will present their projects to the panel of judges comprising both industry and academic partners.
The 12-day event will culminate at the in-person NED 2023 Prize Presentation Ceremony at ITE College Central, Tay Eng Soon Convention Centre on 26 August 2023 where Mr Heng Swee Keat, Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for Economic Policies, will share his insights on Skill Sets for the Circular Economy: Opportunities for Youths in Engineering via a fireside chat.
Organised by The Institution of Engineers, Singapore (IES), NED is an annual event that aims to celebrate the achievements of engineers, inspire young engineers and intrigue students in engineering.
