香港工程師學會 「工程師體驗巡禮」

(香港,二零一九年四月十三日) 香港工程師學會 (下稱「學會」) 今天於香港理工大學 (下稱「理大」) 舉辦「工程師體驗巡禮」 (The HKIE Engineer Day) 大型活動。是次活動與理大合辦,也是香港科學館「2019香港科學節」活動之一。學會期望透過「工程師體驗巡禮」活動,加深大眾對STEM (科學、科技、工程及數學) 教育和工程專業的認識,啟發年輕一代的興趣,鼓勵他們未來投身工程界。

 

活動開幕典禮由教育局局長楊潤雄太平紳士;香港工程師學會會長余錫萬工程師;「工程師體驗巡禮」籌備委員會主席馬紹祥教授、工程師;香港理工大學 工程學院副院長 (教學) 林健文教授、工程師;香港理工大學建設及環境學院院長徐幼麟教授、工程師主持。主禮嘉賓用代表活力和能量的電池,點亮學會,特別為是次活動設計的機械人,象徵工程專業在打造我們的智慧城市所投入的熱誠和作出的貢獻。

 

學會會長余錫萬工程師表示:「創新科技與發展智慧城市,是未來發展路向。本港持續發展大型基建,特區政府在創科方面投放大量資源,加上在大灣區規劃及建設的推動下,未來對工程師的需求甚殷。年輕人創意無限,是工程業界及香港發展的未來棟樑。學會一直致力培育更多年輕工程專才,除積極支持及推動STEM教育,亦經常透過舉辦不同活動及比賽,啟發年輕一代從在學階段開始探求工程知識。希望透過是次『工程師體驗巡禮』,以多元活動加強年輕人對工程專業的認識,鼓勵他們日後成為專業的工程師。」

 

「工程師體驗巡禮」活動內容具豐富的教育意義,當中學會安排了一系列「工程實驗示範」,讓參加者到訪理大的實驗室,參與部分實驗過程,從中理解AI (人工智能) 、VR (虛擬實景) 等科技,明白如何應用工程知識於日常生活之中。另外,「工程講座」安排專家學者講解有關工程科技和知識,令大家更深了解我們的智慧城市。同場亦有資深專業工程師為參加者講解工程專業的發展前景,並協助同學規劃升學路向。

 

是次活動還包括「STEM方案設計比賽」決賽及「智慧城市模型設計比賽」得獎作品展覽。前者是為中學生設計的比賽,旨在鼓勵同學運用STEM知識解決日常生活的難題;後者是給小學生發揮創意及想像的平台,啟發同學運用工程知識,設計理想中的智慧城市。兩項比賽的模型,充份展示出同學的創新意念。現場還有多個展覽、充滿趣味的小遊戲及攤位,提供生動及富教育性的資訊,深化參加者對工程的體驗。

 

活動閉幕暨頒獎典禮上,學會會長余錫萬工程師及香港理工大學建設及環境學院任志浩教授、工程師分別向「STEM方案設計比賽」及「智慧城市模型設計比賽」的得獎者頒發獎項。

 

馬紹祥教授、工程師致辭時表示:「兩個比賽的各參賽作品水準非常高,各隊伍全情投入比賽,設計意念創新,同時能兼顧可行性。大家的表現都十分優秀,我很期待這批新力軍將來加入工程界,為業界注入新力量、新思維,為香港建造更美好的未來。」

 

活動吸引了不少同學、教師、家長,及對工程和智慧城市有興趣的人士參與,各出席嘉賓及參加者都非常享受是次活動,度過了一個愉快的週末。學會未來將舉辦更多活動,進一步推廣工程專業,促進業界持續發展。

The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers “The HKIE Engineer Day”

 

(Hong Kong, 13 April 2019) The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) organised The HKIE Engineer Day at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) today. With the support of the PolyU as the co-organiser, this Event was part of the activities of the HK SciFest 2019 initiated by the Hong Kong Science Museum. The HKIE Engineer Day aims to enhance the public understanding of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education and the engineering profession, inspire the youth and encourage them to join the profession.

 

The Opening Ceremony was officiated by Mr Kevin YEUNG Yun Hung, JP, Secretary for Education; Ir Ringo YU Shek Man, President of the HKIE; Ir Prof Eric MA Siu Cheung, JP, Chairman of the Organising Committee for The HKIE Engineer Day; Ir Prof Kenneth LAM Kin Man, Associate Dean (Teaching and Learning) of Faculty of Engineering, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University; and Ir Prof XU Youlin, Dean of Faculty of Construction and Environment, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. At the Ceremony, the Officiating Guests lit up the robot mascots which were designed for this Event, signifying the passion and contribution of the engineering profession towards the building of our smart city.

 

Ir Ringo YU, President of the HKIE, said, “Innovation and smart city development has become a global trend. Hong Kong is committed to the development of infrastructure and the HKSAR Government is investing substantially to foster innovation and technology development. Under the impetus of the planning and development of the Guangdong-Zhuhai-Macao Greater Bay Area, the demand for engineering professionals is ever increasing. Having boundless creativity and potential, young people are the future pillars of the development of the industry and Hong Kong at large. It has always been the endeavour of the Institution to nurture young engineers. We support and promote STEM education, and have been organising different activities and competitions to arouse students’ interest in STEM especially in engineering. I hope that the diverse activities of The HKIE Engineer Day will enhance the younger generation’s understanding of the engineering profession and enlighten them to choose engineering as their career.”

 

The Event consisted of a variety of educational activities, including a series of “Lab Demonstrations” arranged for participants to visit the laboratories at the PolyU where they could observe and participate in some of the experiments and gain knowledge of technologies such as AI (artificial intelligence) and VR (virtual reality) as well as the daily life application of engineering knowledge. Moreover, a number of “Lectures” were provided with engineering experts sharing with the audience engineering knowledge and experience to enable them to have a better understanding of building a smart city. A career talk introducing how to become an engineer was also delivered, which offered insights to the career path of engineers and assisted students in their planning of further studies and career.

 

The Final of the “STEM Product Proposal and Design Competition” and the exhibition of the award-winning models from the “Smart City Model Design Competition” were also held. The former aimed to encourage secondary school students to identify and solve the challenges in their daily lives with STEM knowledge. The latter allowed primary school students to unleash their creativity and innovative ideas to design an ideal smart city with engineering knowledge. The innovative ideas of the students were fully demonstrated. Besides, there were game booths and informative exhibitions to enrich the participants’ experience in exploring engineering.

 

At the Closing cum Prize Presentation Ceremony, Ir Ringo YU, President of the HKIE; and Ir Prof Michael YAM Chi Ho from Faculty of Construction and Environment, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, presented the prizes to the awardees of the “STEM Product Proposal and Design Competition” and the “Smart City Model Design Competition” respectively. Ir Prof Eric MA in his closing remarks said, “The participating teams were completely absorbed in these two competitions. The submissions are all of high quality, and the ideas are innovative and practically considered at the same time. I am particularly glad to see their outstanding performance, which makes me look forward to their participation in the engineering industry in the future. The injection of this new energy and new thought will certainly promote the building of a better future for Hong Kong.”

 

The HKIE Engineer Day attracted many students, teachers, parents, and engineering and smart city enthusiasts. All guests and participants enjoyed a wonderful weekend at the Event. The Institution will continue organising events to promote the engineering profession, in order to sustain the prosperity of the engineering industry.
