What do you want the world to look like 100 years from now?

When the United Nations outlined its 17 Sustainable Development Goals, it issued a call to action for the world to come together and find solutions to these global challenges. What do they have in common? They all require engineering.

Riding the wave of disruption

Artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, data analytics, quantum computing, augmented reality … these are no longer just buzzwords. These technologies are out in the wild, changing the way engineers work and reshaping the world.

Designing for greater liveability

By 2050, 68 per cent of the world’s population will live in cities. With the population projected to reach 9.7 billion by then – that’s about 6.6 billion people living, working, playing and (hopefully) thriving in urban areas.

Reflecting the communities we serve

Engineering has a diversity problem, which affects the profession’s ability to address the increasingly complex problems the world faces.

Creating the world’s future engineers

The UN Sustainable Development Goals can’t be solved in a day – or perhaps even a decade. And even if they could, new challenges will arise and with that will come opportunities to expand the role of engineers in society. This makes a strong pipeline of engineering talent essential.

Leading the way

If engineers are to create a more sustainable world, the profession itself needs to think more about the principles and values that guide this work.

Adapting to be more resilient

Climate change is one of the most pressing issues facing the world today, and it’s a truly global issue.

Help us build a more sustainable world

The World Engineers Convention will bring the global engineering community together to debate how the profession will build a more sustainable future. What role will you play?
