The Innovation Competition: Our Livable City, We Engineer 「未來城市.一同創造」創新設計比賽

1. Background & Objective:

The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) will hold the ‘Hong Kong Engineers Week 2023’ (HKEW 2023) from 3 to 11 March 2023. As the first-ever event of its kind, it aims to foster understanding on the role of engineers into society amongst the younger generation, and to provide them with opportunities to experience the work of engineers. 


As part of the HKEW 2023, the “Innovation Competition” sets to take place between Oct 2022 and Feb 2023, with its Award Ceremony planned to take place during the Opening Ceremony of HKEW 2023 in March. The Competition aims at enhancing students' understanding and interest in engineers and preparing them to become future engineers.


Taking the theme of “Our Livable City, We Engineer”, the Innovation Competition invites students to become engineers by transforming their vision of a future city into 3D models and videos. Through leveraging their creativity and incorporating concepts such as smart city and sustainability into their designs, they live the lives as engineers and take pride in creating a future livable city.


2. Categories: 

Secondary Schools (school teams)

- Each school can enter up to three teams, each with a maximum of five students
- Software (Sketchup)


Tertiary Institutions (team of 3 - 5)
