19 June 2019

 

Dear members,

 

The 44th AGM was held last evening (18 June 2019) at the Jockey Club Auditorium of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU). Members’ support for the AGM hit a record high with 3,751 Members casting votes at the two voting centres. I am thankful for the enthusiasm of Members in the Institution’s affairs and I welcome the new Council Members on board in the new Session.

 

I am deeply honoured to serve as the President of the HKIE for Session 2019/2020. To strive for further professional excellence, I have adopted as the theme of my presidency – “Knowledge TransferOur Commitment for the Future” (教澤廣被 源遠流長). Under this theme, we will encourage and facilitate knowledge transfer among members so as to foster a culture of pursuing engineering excellence and professional development. We will identify suitable means and collaborate with other organisations to facilitate the transfer of knowledge, ideas and experience among members and from experts in other fields, such as delivery of lectures/ trainings/ seminars/ technical visits and workshops.

 

The Institution will continue to make effort to promote engineering within and beyond Hong Kong. In particular, we will join hands with other institutions in organising regional conferences in promoting innovation and technology in engineering. In the next couple of months, we will host the International Council on Electrical Engineering (ICEE) Conference 2019 in July in Hong Kong, co-organise the Hong Kong and Shanghai Symposium on Science and Technology 2019 in September with the Shanghai Association for Science and Technology (SAST).

 

Promoting the younger generations’ interest in the profession and reinforcing their aptitude in choosing engineering as their lifelong career have always been our priority tasks. We will continue the HKIE Engineer Cadet Club Programme, and extend the scope to cover both primary and secondary schools.  We will also engage young members in developing support measures to students in enhancing their interests and skills in STEM learning.

 

For members, your engagement in the Institution’ activities is important in facilitating networking, interaction and sharing. The Institution is particularly keen on looking for new opportunities to enable members’ professional development.  With the transformation of the Greater Bay Area (GBA) into an innovation and technology hub highlighted as a key objective, this presents significant opportunities for the wealth of engineering talents in Hong Kong. 

 

I am sure that our engineers and especially young engineers are well positioned to benefit from this exciting future.  We will maintain our dialogues with the Hong Kong government and relevant authorities and professional institutions in Guangdong Province on exploring the possibility of recognising the qualifications of Hong Kong construction enterprises and professionals in the GBA, and keep you all posted of any updates on the matter. 

 

I feel the weight of responsibility that falls upon my shoulders, and I count on you, members of the HKIE, for your guidance and support throughout my presidency.

 

Ir Ringo S M YU
President
The HKIE
