Singapore – On 15 June 2023, the Institution of Engineers, Singapore (IES) announced the call for nominations for the IES Prestigious Engineering Achievement Awards and the inaugural IES Sustainability Awards.

The two esteemed awards will recognise individuals and organisations for their exceptional achievements in pushing the boundaries of engineering to support Singapore’s development and transformation towards a green, climate-resilient and sustainable future.

IES Sustainability Awards

IES conceived the Sustainability Awards as a key initiative of the IES Green Plan 2030, launched in January 2023 to create greater impetus amongst engineers to advance Singapore’s sustainable development agenda, innovating and designing solutions to protect the world’s physical, biological and human systems. There are three award categories: Completed engineering project with sustainability features and practices, Innovative sustainability solutions, and Promising sustainability start-ups.

IES Prestigious Engineering Achievement Awards

Since 2013, the IES Prestigious Engineering Achievement Awards have served as an ode to excellence to remarkable engineering projects. The awards are presented to individuals or organisations that demonstrate outstanding engineering skills, enable engineering progress and enhance quality of life in four categories: Applied Research and Development, Engineering Project, Technology Innovation and Student or IES Young Creators Awards. As engineering plays an increasingly pivotal role in shaping Singapore’s future, the awards will underpin efforts to elevate public appreciation of engineering.

“The awards seek to applaud engineers whose exemplary work is making huge impact on our economy, society and environment but yet often goes unnoticed. IES hopes to spotlight these engineers as role models to spur them to scale new heights and inspire the next generation of engineering talent to continue to push the boundaries of engineering in support of Singapore’s development and ambition to be a climate-resilient and sustainable nation,” said Mr Dalson Chung, President of IES.

Nominees for both awards will be put through a rigorous evaluation process. Nominations will close on 28 July 2023. The winners will receive their awards at the IES 57th Annual Dinner on 9 November 2023, to be held in conjunction with the World Engineers Summit (WES) 2023.
