Brief Introduction of The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers

The Engineering Society of Hong Kong was founded in 1947 with the aim of bringing together engineers of different Disciplines for their common good. The Society flourished and as a result the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (the HKIE), was incorporated under the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers Ordinance, Chapter 1105 of the Laws of Hong Kong in 1975. The HKIE is the only statutory professional engineering body in Hong Kong, currently with over 34,000 members, of which more than 15,000 are Corporate Members.

Committed to upholding the quality of membership, the Institution sets standards for the training and admission of engineers of 21 Engineering Disciplines. It also has strict rules governing its members’ conduct and is dedicated to raising the ethical standard of professional engineers in Hong Kong. As a learned society, the 19 Divisions under the Institution regularly organise activities to keep members abreast of the latest engineering developments and also provide opportunities for Continuing Professional Development.

The HKIE prides ourselves on being a proactive social citizen by not only nominating members to serve on various external boards and committees of government departments and higher education institutions, but also providing timely and constructive comments and professional advice on the government’s consultation papers. In addition, the profession has one seat representing the Engineering Functional Constituency in the Legislative Council through which views of the profession can be expressed to the Government.

The HKIE has established close relationship with engineering institutions throughout the world and has signed agreements for reciprocal recognition of professional qualifications and agreements of co-operation with engineering authorities and other organisations worldwide.
