The World Engineering Convention is the Engineering Olympics that takes place every 4 years. The last two editions were held in Japan and Switzerland respectively!
Also called the ‘Olympics of Engineering’ this international convention is held every four years and this year attracted 1300+ global participants from over 70 countries.
The overarching theme for WEC 2019 was “Engineering a Sustainable World: The Next 100 Years”.
The focus was not only on engineering innovation, but how this can have a positive impact on lives by creating sustainable engineering solutions.
Sustainability is used in the broadest sense – encompassing the management of precious natural resources such as water, renewable energy technologies, frugal innovation, management of natural resources etc., and incorporates values of ethics and social responsibility.
This was a unique opportunity to take an integrated approach to solve many of the problems that the world is facing – all of them requiring engineering. With Engineers Australia celebrating its Centenary in 2019, this convention highlighted Australian engineering on a global scale and exploration of the distinctive and sustaining mindset of our profession; the notion that ‘anything is possible’.
