The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers – Hong Kong Engineers Week 2024

HONG KONG SAR –
Media OutReach Newswire – 27 February 2024 – The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) launched a series of exciting activities as part of the
Hong Kong Engineers Week 2024. “Our Future Engineers” Secondary Student Quiz Contest, was specifically designed to ignite our next generation’s interest in engineering. After the preliminary round held last Saturday, we are pleased to announce the finalists: Immaculate Heart of Mary College, Shun Tak Fraternal Association Leung Kau Kui College, and Shun Tak Fraternal Association Yung Yau College. The three teams will compete in the final round taking place on 2 March (Saturday) at the
“Hong Kong Engineers Week Carnival” (Carnival). The HKIE hopes to enhance students’ understanding of the engineering profession, and hence encourage them to explore future career opportunities in the field of engineering.
“Our Future Engineers” Secondary Student Quiz Contest is conducted in a team-based question-and-answer format, consisting of a preliminary round and a final round. The competition topics mainly revolve around engineering knowledge, popular science, and the work of the HKIE. A total of 12 teams participated in the competition. Each team consists of five members, including four students and one backup member. Six HKIE members have formed teams with their alma mater as an expert advisor, answering questions from participating students and providing professional guidance and advice.
The Carnival will be held at the Harbourside Lawn, West Kowloon Cultural District from 1 to 3 March, lasting for three consecutive days. It will feature various interactive game booths, competitions, photo spots, and exciting performances related to engineering. The event is free and open to the public, and
“Our Future Engineers” Secondary Student Quiz Contest final round is also open to the public audience.
The HKIE believes that through interaction with practising professional engineers, students can gain a deeper understanding of the important role engineers play in the development of the city. This helps the younger generation gain a more comprehensive view of the diversity and challenges in the field of engineering, inspiring them to become future engineering talents.
