About this event

Institution of Civil Engineers Hong Kong Association Graduates and Students Division (ICE HKA G&S) prepares a short briefing for Model Building Competition, which is one of the annual events of ICE HKA G&S.

This event is to inspire engineering sense among students and offer them with a valuable chance to apply their technical knowledge into practical use. Participants are required to build a model made of Balsa wood strips within limited time and then the model will be tested under different circumstances.

Apart from the briefing session, a bridge design seminar will be delivered by Mr Sammy YIP from Ove Arup & Partners Hong Kong Limited. Bridge is a fundamental infrastructure in every developed country which provides good connectivity as well as enhances intercity economic growth. Therefore the design of a sustainable bridge is essential to the development of a city.

Mr Sammy YIP will introduce basics of bridge design during the seminar and elaborate more in detail with his design experience. Being one of the judges in the Model Building Competition, Sammy will also share his experience in bridge construction and provide advice for our contestants.

Capacity: 100

Registration priority: First-come-first-served basis with priority given to shortlisted contestants for Hong Kong Model Building Competition 2016 and ICE graduate or student members.
