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.
Conditions of Entry:
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.
You can find out more in the Information Pack.
Application Deadline 29 November 2019 (Friday)

The winners of the 2018/19 ICE HKA G&S Communications Competition: Brick and Mortar
Model Building Competition is an annual competition in which participating teams formed by civil engineering undergraduates will compete against each other. The event can arouse the interest of undergraduate students in engineering and provide them with a valuable chance to apply their technical knowledge and creativity into practical use. This competition also requires students to present their engineering justification of the model built where they 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 building fixing on an earthquake simulating machine. The theme of this year is “Introducing and Demonstrating Earthquake Engineering Research (IDEERS)”.
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 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.
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.
*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 2019. Should you have any enquiry on membership, please feel free to contact the regional support team on +852 3153 4185 or at [email protected] for assistance.

This is a first-of-its-kind civil engineering themed board game. Participants can join the competition either individually or in a team of not more than eight persons. The activity comprises four stages, namely a Briefing Session (Mar 2017), first round competition (2 Sept 2017), final round competition (Nov/Dec 2017) and presentation/demonstration of the winning board game at Launching of ICE 200 Activity Series (Jun 2018).
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.
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:-
Videos of the briefing session have been uploaded to our facebook page.
Participants must submit their applications and entries by 31 July 2017 to ICE Hong Kong, Room 1606, 16/F Dominion Centre, 43-59 Queen's Road East, Wanchai, Hong Kong.
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.
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.
The champion will receive a cash prize of HK$20,000. The 1st runner-up will receive a cash prize of HK$10,000. The 2nd runner-up will receive a cash prize of HK$5,000.
