Chairman’s Message

 

 I wish to begin by thanking our committee members, helpers and supporters for their unreserved commitment to serve our members and the communities, despite their heavy work schedule. “Inspire the Young” is the HKIE theme for the session, it is a challenge not to teach or direct but inspire our younger generation or become a role model.

 

 

 

To face the challenge, we met some engineering students and young members to learn their views on infrastructure development and social considerations – how we can strike a balance for a sustainable development? We certainly need to take pride on our contributions in building Hong Kong.   Our annual dinner has selected the theme “Inspire the Young – The Pride of Civil Engineering”, a group of young and children dancers demonstrated how engineers serving our communities, a photo corridor captured the major infrastructure projects supporting our population and economic growth over the last 30 years.

Our Civil Division Seminar 2015 had also selected the theme “Inspire the Young – What a Civil Engineer must know”, this seminar had focused the basic design approach and engineering methodology for various infrastructure works, young engineers could appreciate the challenges and opportunities in their careers. With the support of our distinguished speakers, the seminar had attracted more than 400 attendees.

Our technical meetings and site visits have also aimed to provide a wider knowledge sharing and exposure to our members, whenever possible, we sought to provide talks on technical matters related to current issues that members would be interested to learn. In addition to the construction sites, visits to operating plants would further enrich our knowledge on the operation and maintenance aspects of our infrastructure works.  Our mainland visits have provided opportunities to learn about the infrastructure development in the Pearl River Delta region, a joint visit with WSD on the mega water supply work, remind us of saving water and the challenges facing urbanisation. Our Winter Camp for young engineers visited the major infrastructure projects in Shanghai and Hangzhou , taking the opportunities to visit the mainland engineering institutions in December.  Our social events have also reinforced the social network of the young engineers and our volunteer service programme showcased the railway and bridge developments to arouse the secondary school students.  You may find out more details of our activities from our AGM report at our civil web site, http://cv.hkie.org.hk.

 

 

 

Despite our donation to support for the purchase of HKIE premises, our financial position remain in a satisfactory position, I would like to take this moment to thank our sponsors and supporters, who have contributed to our events. Once again, my appreciation to the unfailing support of the civil committee.
