Overview

ICE HKA G&S is going to organise the Spain delegation 2024 from 05 July to 13 July 2024 in Madrid.

Spain stands out as an exceptional destination for our construction industry’s practitioners seeking to broaden their horizons and explore the vibrant intersection of innovation, history and culture. With its rich architectural heritage, cutting-edge technological advancements and thriving engineering community, Spain offers a unique and inspiring environment for engineering students and young engineers to explore.

Our upcoming delegation to Spain in renewable energy, transportation infrastructure and more will allow delegates to witness first-hand these successful engineering examples in these areas.

To achieve United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs), smart and innovative engineering solutions are the keys to success. Delegates would have chance to learn about the brilliant ideas realised in Spain and learn more about projects where engineering solutions have been ingeniously applied to daily challenges in the living environment. Also, our delegates to learn more about the good practices in civil engineering and the smart technologies being applied in the built environment.

In this delegation, delegates will be privileged to explore the culture, history and engineering highlights of Spain, which will surely be an eye-opening experience. They will learn from the best practices towards sustainable development through various site and company visits in Spain.

Delegates will not only learn about intelligent technologies being applied in daily life, but they will also bring back these excellent ideas in Spain and share to the construction industry in Hong Kong. After the delegation, delegates will be sharing their experience and learning outcomes in Spain with other Student and Graduate Members of ICE HKA through a dissemination seminar.
