Speak Out of Engineering (SOFE) North East Asia Region (NEAR) Final, 2019

IMechE Speak Out of Engineering (SOFE) North East Asia Region (NEAR) Final was successfully held on 14 December 2019 in Shenzhen. SOFE is designed to help develop verbal and visual communication in explaining technical mechanical engineering related subjects and have been running for years.

We were honored to have Ir Edmund Leung (Founder of IMechE Hong Kong Branch), Ir Louis Szeto (Regional Chair of IMechE NEAR) and Ms Angie Tai (Members of IMechE HKB China Subcommittee) as the panel of judges.

Selena was graduated from the University of Hong Kong and currently working as a graduate trainee at the CLP Power Hong Kong Limited. Selena shared her work in University of Hong Kong regarding the novel thin-film actuator based on nickel hydroxide-oxyhydroxide with the judges and audience. novel thin-film actuator is actuated by various stimuli such as electrochemical potentials, light and humidity change and is able to achieve functionalities unattainable by conventional robots such as interacting with delicate things, producing miniature robots and creating artificial muscles.

Selena and all the contestants gained treasurable experiences and were advised by the honorable judges for improvement on their presentation skills. Here is to wishing Selena great success in the upcoming competition!

Hong Kong Mentorship Scheme (HKMS) - now calling for expressions of interest for Mentors and Mentees

The objective of the Hong Kong Mentorship Scheme is to encourage and support mechanical engineering graduates and young mechanical engineers to become a member of the Institution and register with the Engineering Council (UK) as a Chartered Engineer (CEng MIMechE).

Based on our past success for the implementation of the Professional Development Tutorship Programme (PDTP) since 2006 in Hong Kong, IMechE Hong Kong Branch aims to re-formulate the more structural and comprehensive professional development scheme named “Hong Kong Mentorship Scheme (HKMS)” to assist our young members and guide them to become the Professional Mechanical Engineer (CEng MIMechE or IEng MIMechE).  The HKMS was introduced and formally launched on 26 April 2012 for our members. (Associate Member)

Make a Difference. Be a Mentor.
We received comments from our young members over the years that there are few companies offered structured training and they have difficulties in locating sponsors for applying IMechE as Corporate Member (MIMechE). There is a gap between the time after their graduation and before ready for IMechE Corporate Membership interview. Therefore, the HKMS is aiming to bridge the gap.  As a Mentor, you will play an important role in shaping a young engineer's professional future.  We have online resources (Guide to be an MPDS and SRS Mentor) on hand to support you during the scheme. Through the quarterly and annual report assessment and regular contacts to encourage, provide support and suitable advice to the young engineers in obtaining professional qualification in IMechE.  

Become a Mentee
As a Mentee you will work one-on-one with your Mentor to develop your career plan. Your Mentor will also provide advice about what life will be like after you graduate.  You will be given a login accessing a web-based records management system tool called Career Developer for recording your professional development progress. You are required to report quarterly and annually and your Mentor will make an annual assessment of your competence against UK-SPEC.  A Mentee should always actively seeks support and guidance in your career and professional development from your mentor. As a Mentee, you always have ultimate responsibility for your career and professional development.

The HKMS will provide a platform to knit Associate Members and Members together. Hence young Associate Members could have experienced Members in the Institution to go for when he has doubts in personal development and career development.  Also, it aims to provide the opportunity to seek advices so one could develop the necessary competence and commitment required of a Chartered Engineer (CEng) or Incorporated Engineer (IEng) under IMechE.

Now, if you have interest to join HKMS as the Mentor to assist and guide the mentees or join as the Mentee, please download and complete the Mentor or Mentee application form  and return to IMechE Hong Kong Office by email or by fax: 852 2894 9885.
