Reinforced concrete is still commonly used for building and construction in Singapore and around the world. Sustainability considerations in recent years have resulted in an in creased focus on the repair and refurbishment of all types of concrete structures rather than demolition and redevelopment. Furthermore, defects are now more evident in building constructed during the boom years of economic growth when buildings are erected at a very fast pace. Resident Engineers (REs) and Resident Technical Officers (RTO) are the first line of defense to prevent concrete defects as they are directly involved in supervision of concreting works, they may be involved in development projects requiring addition and alteration of existing buildings in conjunction with new developments.This series of programme will provide the participant with the technical knowledge on the causes of structural and non-structural defects in concrete, their remedies, repairs and the preventive maintenance needed to upkeep these structures.

With the increasing awareness and effort of adoption of sustainableconstruction which will require less of natural resources and increasethe reusability of engineered material, the Industry has been exploring the use of engineered wood products such as Glued Laminated Timber (Glulam) and Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) as readily available sustainable way of construction.The workshop will be focusing on the potential benefits andpossibilities of using engineered wood products for medium risebuildings. The goal of the workshop is to provide a general overviewand understanding toward embracing the development of thestructural design of Glulam and CLT buildings.During the workshop, several calculation case-studies will be shown inorder to help the participants to understand on the main concepts oftimber engineering.

This course is to give a broad view and the purposeful meaning of the Practice of Professional Engineering Examination; to identify the common mistake and weakness in the candidates who responded to the exam questions.

Industrialisation and modernisation has spread rapidly among Asian countries, including Singapore. Consequently, this implies increasing energy use and increasing critical facilities management. Electricity are widely used and account for a large share in industrial electrical system. Hence, the reliability and energy performance of these equipment are of utmost importance.

The Technical Seminar on Transient Voltage Surge Suppression Technology provides an insight to engineers, facilities managers, competent persons, industrial consultants, and project teams working on electrical systems in order to have a cleaner & safer electricity to protect their asset & reduce failure.

The Seminar is developed to understand the design and root cause of Transient issue, High voltage surge, effects of transients on electronic equipment, active frequency tracking, Modes of protection in a safe and efficient way for electrical power systems.

CPD/ PDU/ STU: 5 (Five) PDUs Approved/ Confirmed for PEB PEs (for all engineering branches/ disciplines) and IES C.ENGs (for engineering sectors listed in https://www.charteredengineers.sg).

Pending approval/ confirmation STU for IES/ACES M&E REs & RTOs.

This course is designed to assist engineers to prepare for Practical Professional Exam in Civil Engineering. The syllabus of the exam is very wide; many engineers do not know how to prepare for the exam. This course uses systemic approach to cover major topics.

Soaring Demand Drives Landscape Lighting Market Growth During the Forecast Period, 2018 to 2028

Fact.MR has announced the addition of the Landscape Lighting Market Forecast, Trend Analysis & Competition Tracking - Global Market Insights 2018 to 2028"report to their offering.

Rockville, MD -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/02/2019 -- The development of energy-efficient and economic LEDs lighting products has broaden the application of the LED lights including the outdoors also. Due to advancements in landscape lighting technology, (such as the use of chip-on-board technology) landscape lighting are being adopted significantly. Moreover, the day and night monitoring of the outside environment is done with the help of the landscape lighting. The landscape lighting market is expected to have a significant growth during the forecast period owing to the promising application of landscape lighting inside the house and in roadways also. The modern landscape lighting is expected to encourage people to switch from conventional lighting solutions to LED landscape lighting solutions due to the advanced features of the landscape lighting market. In addition, the arrival of efficient and smart technologies, such as daylight sensors and control systems (for the remote monitoring of smart street lights) provide a rise in potential opportunities for the landscape lighting market.

24 Apr 2019 to 24 Apr 2019

This Engineering/ Technical Event is organised by IES Aerospace Engineering Technical Committee (AETC).

Speaker: Associate Professor Dr. Liu Erjia, School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, College of Engineering, Nanyang Technological University (NTU)

Cold spray is attracting increasing interest as a coating, repair and additive manufacturing process across a large number of industry sectors. Recent advances in equipment, coupled with novel approaches to the manufacturing and metallurgy of the materials employed in cold spray are encouraging the development of load bearing applications for AI, Fe, Ni and Ti alloy components.

Coatings and surface engineering: addressing the needs of industry

Water repellence; lightning conduction; increased abrasion resistance all properties which can be imparted to a material through the use of coatings and surface engineering.


The complex castings made of difficult-to-weld alloys used in aircraft structures can easily suffer superficial damage, either during their production as a result of casting defects or mismachining, or during service as a result of wear and corrosion.

Alongside surface engineering for repairs, the aerospace sector also needs durable anti-icing and anti-fouling coatings, improved bulk materials for aircraft leading edges, thermally resistant coatings and advanced composite materials for aircraft pipelines.

Construction & Built Environment

The construction industry is always seeking improved ways to repel moisture, limit the impact of fouling and preserve dimensional stability, appearance and insulation performance.
