In less than two centuries, Hong Kong has developed from an insignificant fishing port into a modern metropolitan city. She owes her transformation to the competent and dedicated professionals in different areas in Hong Kong over the past years. This book depicts the development of the engineering profession and the institutions representing Hong Kong’s engineers from 1842 to 1975. The evolution of local engineering institutions reflects a significant aspect of Hong Kong’s social development. The book traces the history of each engineering body up to the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers, and takes the reader through many phases of the city’s development. In the background of all this is the interaction between the institutions and the society at different periods at large. By telling the stories of these engineering bodies, we wish to pay tribute to their members who have not only made meaningful contribution to their own profession but have also left indelible marks on Hong Kong’s path to prosperity.


The Engineering Society of Hong Kong, was founded in 1947 with the aim to bring together engineers of different Disciplines for their common good. 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. As at May 2014, the Institution has over 31,000 members of whom over 14,000 are in the grade of Corporate Member.

The Institution sets standards for the training and admission of engineers of 21 engineering Disciplines. It also has strict rules governing the conduct of its members and is dedicated to raising the ethical standards of professional engineers in Hong Kong. The 19 Divisions under the Institution regularly organise activities to keep members abreast of the latest developments in engineering and also provide opportunities for continuing professional development.

The HKIE not only nominates its members to serve on various external boards and committees of government departments and higher education institutions, but also provides comments and professional advice on the government’s consultation papers and engineering-related bills in committee meetings of the Legislative Council. 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 signed agreements for reciprocal recognition of professional qualifications and agreements of co-operation with engineering institutions worldwide and is a member of many international engineering institutions.
