About the Organisers

Organised by
The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE)

The Engineering Society of Hong Kong was founded in 1947 with the aim of bringing together engineers of different disciplines for their common good. The Society flourished and in 1975, the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (the HKIE), was incorporated under the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers Ordinance, Chapter 1105 of the Laws of Hong Kong. Today the HKIE has over 33,000 members, of which more than 16,000 are Corporate Members.

The HKIE is committed to upholding the quality of membership and sets standards for the training and admission of engineers from 21 engineering disciplines. It also has strict rules governing members’ conduct and is dedicated to raising the ethical standards of professional engineers in Hong Kong. As a learned society, the HKIE encourages the 19 divisions to hold regular activities to keep members abreast of the latest engineering developments and also provide opportunities for their continuing professional development.

The HKIE prides itself on being a proactive social citizen by not only nominating members to serve on various external boards and committees of Government Departments and higher education institutions, but also by providing timely and constructive comments and professional advice on the Government’s consultation papers. The engineering profession has one seat representing the Engineering Functional Constituency in the Legislative Council through which views of the profession can be expressed to the Government.

The HKIE has established close relationship with engineering institutions throughout the world and has signed agreements for reciprocal recognition of professional qualifications and agreements of co-operation with engineering authorities and other organisations worldwide.
