Many societal, financial, medical, infrastructure and environmental issues require rational analysis and engineering knowhow for formulating the appropriate solutions. Contributing to public policy has been the principal aim of the Academy’s activities and will remain so in the foreseeable future when Hong Kong is moving into a new technology era of big data and smart city and also facing an unprecedented opportunity in the Big Bay Area.
The HKAES Fellowship is characterized by its dedication to serving Hong Kong, the Mainland China and the region with top-quality engineering expertise and therefore election to the Academy is by invitation only. Up to eight Fellows may be elected annually. All are elected by their peers for personal achievements of exceptional merit and distinction. Fellows are distinguished by the title “Fellow of the Hong Kong Academy of Engineering Sciences” with the designatory letters “FHKEng”.
