CAFEO 36 – Conference of the ASEAN Federation of Engineering Organisation 2018

CAFEO 36 - Conference of the ASEAN Federation of Engineering Organisation 2018

12 – 14 November 2018, Singapore

Bringing ASEAN’s engineering community together for 36 years

The Conference of the ASEAN Federation of Engineering Organisations (CAFEO) is back! This year, The Institution of Engineers, Singapore (IES) is honoured to host the 36th edition in Singapore.

CAFEO 36 will be an event with added significance, as it will coincide with Singapore’s Chairmanship of ASEAN. In light of the adoption of the Master Plan on ASEAN Connectivity 2025 by ASEAN leaders in September 2016, IES is aligning CAFEO 36 around two distinct themes: Engineering Rail Connectivity and Fostering Excellence in Engineering Education.

For the first time, IES is also joining forces with the SMRT Corporation and the Singapore University of Technology Design to organise two exciting and content-rich conferences – the Singapore Rail Technology Conference (SRTC) and the ASEAN Engineering Deans Summit (AEDS).

Held over two days, the conferences will comprise of keynote, case study presentations and panel discussions with Q&A. The presentations will focus on lessons, challenges and opportunities in these fields.


The Singapore Rail Technology Conference (SRTC)

The Singapore Rail Technology Conference is a point of confluence for operators, regulators, industry partners, and academia to network and share about projects, technologies, ideas, and best practices around the ASEAN region.

The rapid development of railway networks in the ASEAN region, enabling the large scale movement of people and goods, is expected to supercharge the region’s economic growth. Rail investments in the region span both green and brown field activities, and range from the building of high speed rail networks, new regional and inter-city links, to the renewal and rejuvenation of established metro lines.

Themes that will be discussed

  • ASEAN Country Updates
  • Railway Projects
  • High Speed Rail
  • Railway Technology
  • Urban Mobility




ASEAN Engineering Deans Summit (AEDS)

In the wake of the global changes that are re-shaping engineering education, the focus must be on quality and excellence in designing and delivering educational programs. Engineering education has been evolving from knowledge-based to skills-based, where emphasis is heavily placed on the outcomes of the educational program in shaping not only the knowledge, but also the skills and attributes of its graduates to prepare them to be future ready for the 21st century challenges.

This inaugural two-day event will focus on outcomes-based engineering education and accreditation and new pedagogies and will bring together engineering deans, academicians and leaders of accreditation bodies to deliberate on important issues and trends impacting engineering education within the region and beyond.

Themes that will be discussed

  • Engineering Education for 21st Century
  • Progress of Engineering Education in ASEAN Countries
  • Importance and Opportunities for International Collaboration
  • Quality Assurance of Engineering Education
  • Transformation of Engineering Education
