Help us unlock the future of engineering!
Dear Members (Regular and Student)

As you may have heard, IES has embarked on a Repositioning Project to face the challenges ahead in supporting engineers and promoting engineering. Thus, we would like to invite you to participate in a survey to help us understand current perceptions of IES and the profession, and to chart our future direction.

It will take about five minutes to complete. We would deeply appreciate it if you could do so by 2 Oct 2020 (Mon). Please also spread it to your contacts who are non-IES members, and also not in engineering, as we wish to obtain insights from outside our community too. Thank you very much!
