Newly-chartered civil engineers and new members of the Institution were recognised at a ceremony attended by family and friends.
Hundreds of engineers have been celebrated at the latest ICE Certification Presentation Ceremony in Hong Kong.
Over 600 people attended the event at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre on 24 January 2019 to see 326 candidates receive certificates for passing their Chartered Professional Review (CPR) last year and become chartered civil engineers and members of ICE.
Ken Ho, Chairman of ICE Hong Kong Association delivered the opening speech, during which he congratulated the new members and highlighted the importance of lifelong learning and continuous professional development (CPD) for all members.
He shared his experience of how being an ICE member can open up global career opportunities for members.
Meanwhile, Professor Mak Chai-kwong, ICE Vice President International, advised members in a speech to “look forward and look back” in their professions - to learn from the past to effect positive change in the future.
He also reminded members to play an active role to drive and deliver the best solutions to infrastructure projects for sustainable development for the benefit of society.
Many of the certificate recipients received their certificates after attending CPR preparation workshops conducted by the Hong Kong ICE Membership team.
