The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers was initially founded in Hong Kong in 1947 as The Engineering Society of Hong Kong to promote the professional standing, interests and technical standards of local engineers across a broad spectrum of engineering specialisations. Ever since, the Society had been advancing its members’ professional and social
involvement as it flourished. It was then granted the official status as a statutory body and was incorporated in 1975 as the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers under the Hong
Kong Institution of Engineers Ordinance, Chapter 1105 of the Laws of Hong Kong—as the city itself went through decades of phenomenal growth in areas of infrastructure,
industrial and social development with engineers playing their pivotal roles during uch process.
