Engineers have been contributing to society with their professionalism. There are 22 engineering disciplines, including building, civil, aircraft, electronics, environmental, fire and nuclear, and they all affect our daily lives. This event serves as a good start and we hope the public see the different sides of engineers. The HKIE will continue to collaborate with stakeholders to promote engineering profession and attract more young talents to join this meaningful work, together making contributions to the development of Hong Kong.'

On other hand, the 'Our Dream City' primary school design competition concluded after three days of public voting and judging. Precious Blood Primary School, St. Francis of Assisi's Caritas School (Team 2), and Chai Wan Kok Catholic Primary School (Team 1) were crowned as the champion, first runner-up, and second runner-up, respectively. The competition involved teams of primary four to primary six students who, with the guidance and collaboration of engineering mentors, designed and built models of their 'Dream City'. Ten selected models were exhibited at Harbourside Lawn, West Kowloon Cultural District during the three-day Carnival. Today, students delivered presentations, sharing the elements they envisioned for their 'Dream City'. The HKIE hopes that this event will unleash students' creativity, foster teamwork, enhance their interest in urban development and the field of engineering, and promote the importance of sustainable development in society.

The 'Engineer Alliance' competition held its final round today, where five young engineers showcased their professionalism and leadership through individual speeches. After the evaluation by judges and public voting, Ir Eva LEE emerged as the team leader, while Mr Anthony CHAN and Miss Miro CHAN became deputy team leaders.

Starting from 29 February, the HKIE organises Career Fairs at different tertiary institutions, providing information and advice to students interested in joining the engineering field.
