Speak Out for Engineering is a competition designed to help develop verbal and visual communication in explaining technical mechanical engineering related subjects. However, if you are already a talented public speaker then the competition is your chance to demonstrate your skill!

Who can enter

The competition is open to any
1. Affiliate 
2. Associate 
3. Young Member of the Institution who has been professionally registered for ten years or less.

Competitors are to give an oral presentation on a mechanical engineering related subject. Presentation slides, materials or props can be used to support a presentation.

What do competitors have to do
Competitors are required to prepare a written presentation summary of 200 words maximum, which should be sent to the organizer when notification is given of the intention to enter the competition. Failure to submit the synopsis may invalidate the entry. The presentation must be made by an individual regardless of whether the subject is part of a group technical project. Computer and projector would be provided by organizer. Judges will expect more experienced competitors to have developed presentation skills and their marking assessment will reflect this. A winning entry in any year is not eligible for entry in subsequent years.

Competitors must give an oral presentation in English on a mechanical engineering subject to be broken down as follows:

Presentation length: 20 mins
Discussion Questions from judges: 10 mins

90% of the total marks are given for presentation with only 10% for technical content. This ensures that, while all presentations must have mechanical engineering content in its broadest sense (e.g. purpose, research, design, feasibility, and practicality), all presentations have the same chance of success despite varying degrees of technical content. The champion will represent Hong Kong Branch to join the North East Asia Regional Competition in Hong Kong in November 2019. All participants will receive a certificate and a souvenir.
