Hong Kong - awards

View from the peak - Hong Kong

The ICE HKA has recently introduced two new initiatives to promote knowledge exchange. They are Technical Report Prize and ICE HKA sponsorship for attending international or regional conferences.

Recognising individual achievement

Our Hong Kong branch organises and supports awards which showcase the outstanding achievements of ICE members.

Technical Report Prize

Technical Report Prize

This Prize is awarded to members who prepare reports of a high standard on a designated technical meeting, conference/seminar, breakfast forum, or site visit organised by the ICE HKA.

Student and graduate members as well as other members who attained their professional status within five years before the event are eligible to enter.

Winners will be given a prize of HK$500, or granted free attendance at the ICE HKA Annual Conference or Annual Dinner.

More information

For more information, please refer to the Technical Report Prize Rules.

Conference Sponsorship

Conference Sponsorship

The establishment of the ICE HKA sponsorship for members who attend international or regional conferences on topics within the realm of civil engineering. The purpose of the sponsorship is to encourage Hong Kong-based ICE members to participate in these events in order to broaden their knowledge and learn from experience in local or overseas projects.

Student and graduate members as well as other members who attained their professional status within five years before the event are eligible to apply. Successful applicants will be awarded up to 100% of the cost of conference attendance, excluding travel and accommodation expenses.

Graduate & Student Model Building Competition

Graduate & Student Model Building Competition

Model Building Competition is one of ICE's signature events which encourages participants to utilise their engineering knowledge from books to construct a civil engineering model. It welcomes undergraduate student members from all institutes who offer civil engineering or civil engineering related programmes.

Students will develop their abilities to apply knowledge into practical use with creativity. This competition also requires students to present their engineering justification of the model built by which they would further polish their presentation skills.

Model Building Competition is a team competition where students are given limited materials and time to build a model according to the pre-announced specifications. The theme this year is "Bridge".

Prerequisite

  • Teams must be formed by full-time undergraduate students.
  • Four to six members are allowed in one team.
  • All team members must be student members of The Institution of Civil Engineers.
  • Contestants from previous years are allowed to join the competition.
  • If there are more than EIGHT teams registered successfully, contestants will be selected by lucky draw.
  • A refundable deposit of $100 per team will be collected during registration. This deposit will be refundable if the team is not enrolled in the competition.

Competition Format

The project specifications, rules and judging criteria will be made available after the event registration. The competition consists of three parts: model building, testing and presentation.

Model building: Teams are given 210 minutes (i.e. three hours and a half) to complete the model according to specifications of the competition by using materials and tools provided by ICE only. Penalty is applicable if overtime working happens.

Testing: The model will be tested based on the project specifications. The assessment of the structural performance includes both physical measurements (i.e. dimensions, self-weight) and structural integrity/efficiency (i.e. loading performance). All tests will be performed by ICE under the witness of honourable judges.

Presentation: Each team is given 5 minutes to illustrate their engineering justification regarding the model in English only. Penalty is applicable if the presentation is over 5 minutes.

Prizes

The cash prize will be awarded to:

  • Winner Team: HKD2500 and Certificates
  • First Runner-up Team: HKD1500 and Certificates
  • Second Runner-up Team: HKD500 and Certificates
  • Best Presentation Team: HKD300 and Certificates

Prize and certificates for winner, first runner-up, second runner-up and best presentation teams will be presented in G&S Annual General Meeting.

*You may register online for student membership for free. Application for the competition is valid as long as the membership registration is submitted on or before 6 January 2018. Should you have any enquiry on membership, please feel free to contact the regional support team on +852 3153 4181 or at membership@icehk.org.hk for assistance.

Simulating the Civil Engineering World and Earn a Prize!

To tie in with "ICE 200: Civil Engineers Transform Your Life", ICE HKA is organising a Board Game Design Competition for civil engineering students, secondary school students and the general public. Entry teams will design a board game which simulates the civil engineering world in an exciting and informative way. Winning board games will be produced as a souvenir, or publicity/outreach merchandise, or a charity product for ICE 200.

Stage 1 - Briefing Session (held on 11 Mar 2017)

The Briefing Session is designed to enhance target participants' interests and understanding of the civil engineering world, as well as their knowledge in board games such that they would find integration and synergy between the two subjects. Details are as follows:-

  • Fascinating aspects of civil engineering and vision for civil engineering in the future from a personal perspective
    – by Mr C S Wai and Ms Jenny Yeung
  • Introduction to board game competition
    – by Ms Eva Kong and Mr Wing Li
  • Sharing by a "Board game expert"
    – by Mr Thomas Lam

Videos of the briefing session have been uploaded to our facebook page.

The first round of competition will be held 2 September 2017. Participants are required to give a 15-minute presentation on the design of their entries. Each team selected to be a finalist will receive HK$2,000 cash prize, which may be used to produce game prototype and rulebook for the final round of competition.

Stage 4 - Final Round and Prize

The final round of competition will be held in November/December 2017 (TBC) in the form of game demonstration. Participants are required to prepare game prototypes and rulebooks for introducing their games to and teaching the judges to play. The game demonstration by each team should not exceed 45 minutes, including presentation of game design and rules.
