About the event

Engineers Australia and the World Federation of Engineering Organizations welcome you to Melbourne for the World Engineers Convention (WEC) 2019 – a coming together of some of the greatest engineering minds from around the globe, hosted in one of the world’s most liveable cities.

Known as the ‘Olympics of Engineering’ this international convention is held every four years and will attract 1300+ global participants from over 70 countries.

The overarching theme for WEC 2019 is Engineering a Sustainable World: The Next 100 Years. The focus will not only be on engineering innovation, but how this can have a positive impact on our 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.
