Keynote speakers:

  • Professor Cath Noakes OBE, Professor of Environmental Engineering for Buildings, University of Leeds, and a member of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) 
  • Dr Hayaatun Sillem CBE, Chief Executive of the Royal Academy of Engineering.

This year’s WES Annual Conference will be held over 2 days online, on the broad theme of ‘serving society’. This extraordinary year has highlighted how engineers have not just created groundbreaking solutions and innovations in response to the Covid pandemic, but how they also deliver and maintain critical services and infrastructure in all aspects of society.

With leading industry speakers, the conference will not only reflect and explore how engineers serve society but also look to the digital future. Alongside this will be sessions on professional development, career planning and technical skills for women engineers at every stage of their careers, along with opportunities to network online.

The conference is designed as a key virtual knowledge-sharing opportunity and meeting place for professionals in engineering and allied sectors at all stages of their careers, across the WES Membership and beyond.

Full details of the programme and how to register will be available soon.
