The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers
Launch “Smart Tomorrow, Engineers’ Motto” Programme Promote Smart City Development in Hong Kong

 

(Hong Kong, 22 March 2018) The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) will launch the ‘Smart Tomorrow, Engineers” Motto’ Programme in April 2018. The programme is designed to support the government’s policy objective of developing Hong Kong into a smart city,

 

The key event will be an engaging interactive exhibition showcasing the engineering profession’s distinguished achievements in smart city development. This will enable the public to experience the convenience and improvement to living brought about by innovation in engineering and technology. It is hoped that the event will not only raise public awareness of the vital role engineers play in enhancing our quality of life, but also inspire young people to have an interest in engineering, thereby fostering a new generation of talent for the industry.

 

Ir Thomas CHAN Kwok Cheung, the President of the HKIE, said, “Many cities around the world have adopted technological innovation as the key strategy to increase their competitiveness. Last year, the HKSAR government put smart city development into its policy agenda with a vision of making Hong Kong a world-class smart city.”

 

“Hong Kong enjoys an advantage in talent development. Grooming young engineers is also one of the HKIE’s key long-term initiatives. We actively support STEM education in schools to help young people unleash their potential to innovate.”

 

“The ‘Smart Tomorrow, Engineers’ Motto” programme is thoughtfully designed to enable youngsters to learn more about the dynamic and meaningful aspects of engineering, while also shedding light on how the industry creates long-term value for our community by bringing positive changes to our living through innovation.”

 

Ir Dr YUEN Pak Leung, the Vice President of the HKIE cum Chairman of the Organising Committee for the Programme, said, “To realise the Smart City Blueprint for Hong Kong, we must nurture more young engineers who are enthusiastic and willing to tackle complex challenges. The HKIE hopes that the government will continue to support the industry in research & development with the introduction of various cutting-edge technologies into Hong Kong. Consideration should also be given to assigning regular funding for schools and other stakeholders to promote STEM education and foster more talents in the engineering and creative industries, so as to speed up developing Hong Kong into a world-leading smart city.”

 

“By leveraging on our expertise in engineering, the HKIE will continue to contribute in the development of Hong Kong and the nurturing of talents in the engineering and technology professions to build a smart future with Hong Kong citizens,”

 

Details of the “Smart Tomorrow, Engineers’ Motto” Programme:

 

“Smart Tomorrow, Engineers’ Motto ” Exhibition (please refer to Appendix 1 for details)

The exhibition focuses on three major aspects of a smart city. All exhibits originate from the creative ideas of engineers in putting together a picture of smart living in Hong Kong’s future. “Smart Education” demonstrates how digital technologies can be used to enhance learning interest and effectiveness. “Smart Health” showcases a number of innovations in health technology which help people live healthier and better lives, so as to prepare for the challenges of an aging population. The content in “Smart Use of Resources”, meanwhile, highlights contributions to environment protection and sustainable development.

 

Education

  • Immersive Demonstration: Transmission Tower Climbing – The application of Virtual Reality (VR) technology in a tower climbing simulation allows staff to familiarise themselves with the working environment and use of safety equipment in a controlled

 

Smart Health

  • The Hong Kong Intelligent Cognitive Assessment Platform (HK-iCap) – This is the first self-administered cognitive assessment system in Hong Kong to provide a fast cognitive assessment service for the elderly to detect whether they have early signs of dementia;
  • AliveCor Kardia Mobile ECG – In just 30 seconds, this delivers a medical-grade ECG to let users know instantly whether their heart rhythm is normal or if fibrillation is detected in their ECG;
  • SeeMe Rehabilitation by Fun – This applies VR technology to help people with mobility problems exercise at home prescribed by their therapist through the interaction with virtual stimuli;
  • Sitting Posture Monitor (SPM) – This uses big data analysis technology to analyse whether the user’s sitting posture is accurate and monitors the health conditions of the elderly;
  • 3D Printed Artificial and Osteo-conductive Bone-grafts for Speedy Orthopaedic Treatment – This device uses Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printing technology to heat up biocompatible materials to a semi-liquid state and then implant them in the injured part of the patient’s body to provide

 

 The HKIE Colouring and Mascot Naming Competition

To tie in with global education trends, the Competition aims to inspire primary school students’ creativity and unleash their innovative potential while, at the same time, enhancing their understanding of the engineering profession and promoting STEM education.
