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.
Our Hong Kong branch organises and supports awards which showcase the outstanding achievements of ICE members.
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.
For more information, please refer to the Technical Report Prize Rules.
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.
Please refer to the Information Pack for more details.

This year's Communications Competition for Student and Graduate Members of ICE in Hong Kong has now opened.
The competition, which was originated in the UK, aims to help young members to develop their skills and techniques for public consultation.
Participants will be required to utilise their interpersonal skills as they present a civil engineering project at a mock public consultation meeting. They will also need to win over the judges and audience as they deliver a presentation and face questions on how the project will affect different stakeholders.
The competition consists of written tasks and a 30-minute interactive mock public consultation meeting.
In addition to the presentation, the teams have to prepare the following documents to support delivery of the mock public consultation meeting. The project scenario will be released once the application is closed.
For details, please refer to the Information Package.
Application Deadline: 03 December 2021
Release of the project scenario: 10 December 2021
Submission deadline of EOI: 24 December 2021

Model Building Competition is an annual competition which participating teams formed by civil engineering undergraduates compete against each other. The event can arouse the interest of undergraduate students in engineering and provide them with a valuable opportunity to apply their technical knowledge and creativity into practical use. This competition also requires students to present their engineering justification of the model built and it would further polish their presentation skills.
Participants are required to build a model made of balsa wood within a given time limit. The model will be tested by applying loads on the bridge fixing a wind tunnel machine. The theme of this year is ‘Introducing and demonstrating bridge design against wind load.’
Conditions of Entry
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 to complete the model according to the 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 (ie. dimensions, self-weight) and structural integrity/efficiency (ie. loading performance).
All tests will be performed by ICE under the witness of honourable judges.
Presentation: Each team is given five minutes to illustrate their engineering justification regarding the model in English only. Penalty is applicable if the presentation is over five minutes.
The cash prize will be awarded to
Prize and certificates for winner, first runner-up, second runner-up and best presentation teams will be presented in G&S Annual General Meeting.
Application Deadline: 30 November 2020 (Monday)

The Shaping Our Future City 2022 campaign offers a unique and structured learning opportunity for students to understand the key elements of engineering, foresee into future opportunities and challenges in the civil engineering field through a series of talks and workshops.
Shaping Our Future City is an annual event for the Institution of Civil Engineers Hong Kong Association Graduates and Students Division (ICE HKA G&S), which offers a unique and structured learning opportunity for senior secondary school students (F.4 to F.5) to understand the key elements of engineering.
As part of STEM education, this campaign would include talks, workshops, and site visits that can provide students with a more comprehensive view of engineering subjects and stimulate their minds in science and technology. The campaign also aims at conveying ideas to our young generation that civil engineering works are vital to the prosperity and success of our society.
Another highlight of the campaign would be the inter-school scenario-based competition themed ‘Energise our city, engineer our victory’. This year, students will have the opportunity to work with young engineers to design a sports complex and develop its associated infrastructures such as transport connections, landscaping and utilities. This will allow the students to consolidate their STEM knowledge learned at school, develop their creativity and experience the life of a civil engineer. The winning team of this competition would be entitled to $5000 of book vouchers.
The campaign this year will comprise three events:
An invitation has been sent to principals of schools in Hong Kong via the Education Bureau’s Business-School Partnership Programme. To enter, please fill in the enrolment form and email it to [email protected].
