The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) was incorporated under the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers Ordinance, Chapter 1105 of the Laws of Hong Kong in 1975. The Institution sets standards for the training and admission of engineers and has strict rules governing its members’ conduct. As a learned society, it regularly organises activities to keep members abreast of the latest engineering developments and for the purpose of continuing professional development.
What Engineering is All About
Did you know Engineering is all around us? Construction of buildings, roads, railways, bridges, production of printing machines and the design of computer games programmes are all Engineers’ contributions. Even the pen in your hand involved the work of Engineers.
Engineering is the application of science and technology and the practice of complicated theories in our daily lives. By directing the great sources of power in nature for the use and convenience of mankind, Engineering solves many problems we encounter and improves our quality of life. The endeavours of Engineers contribute much to make Hong Kong a glamorous and prosperous metropolitan.
The scope of work of this multi-disciplinary and challenging profession ranges from design, maintenance, management, manufacturing, system integration, research & development, construction, sales support and academic. Besides constructing roads and bridges, the success of an Engineering project depends heavily upon the cooperation among different Engineering Disciplines in Hong Kong.
The list of current HKIE Disciplines:
- Building Services
- Control, Automation & Instrumentation
- Logistics & Transportation
- Manufacturing & Industrial
- Marine & Naval Architecture
