Singapore section

Welcome to the IRSE Singaporean Section web page.  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.
