Singapore section

Welcome to the IRSE Singaporean Section web page.  Our section caters for the needs of IRSE members in Singapore.  We also welcome visitors from the region and beyond, to join our regular presentations.  We hope that IRSE members visiting Singapore will be able to join us at some of our events and meetings.  If you have a presentation that would like to share with us you would be more than welcome as we are keen to have presentations from around the world.

Meetings and events

The Singaporean Section of the IRSE meets bi-monthly throughout the year.  We usually meet on a Saturday lunchtime at a variety of venues.  The meeting is usually followed by lunch at the venue.

For 2016, we have had a variety of presentations by both local and external presenters.

2016 presentations included:

  • Singapore DTL Signalling. (Presenter: Joanne Lee)
  • Faults and Failures in Railway Signalling Systems.  (Presenter: Mr M.P.White)
  • Presentation based on IRSE Presidential address in London. (Presenter: IRSE President Charles Page)


We will put these presentations on our web page in due course. Details of presentations for 2017 will be published in 1st quarter of 2017.

Meetings with other regional IRSE sections

The IRSE Singaporean Section regularly meets with other IRSE sections in the ASEAN region. Members of our committee have in recent years attended meetings and conventions organised by the IRSE local sections in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Bandung, Indonesia. In addition members of these sections have attended some of our regular presentations. We plan to open up a similar dialogue and exchange with the soon to be formed Thailand IRSE section.
