Division Chairman for Session 2019/2020


Ir Tony K T YEUNG 


Welcome to the web site of the Electrical Division!  It is my great honour to serve as the Chairman of the Electrical Division for Session 2019/2020. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the past chairmen for their exceptional leadership and to our Committee members for their contribution to make our Division grow and become even better.


This year is the 42nd year of the Division since its establishment in 1978.  In the past four decades, electrical engineering has seen a lot of changes.  New and disruptive technologies are emerging.  Being a learned society, we shall continue to encourage and facilitate knowledge transfer among members through our annual symposium, professional short courses, technical seminars, technical visits etc.  In addition to these well-established platforms, the Division together with the HKIE is also organising The International Council on Electrical Engineering Conference 2019 which will be held in Hong Kong from 2-6 July 2019.  The theme of this well-known annual international conference this year is “Towards Intelligent Electrical Engineering” in which many heavy weight speakers including a Nobel Laureate are invited to share their visions and latest researches in electrical engineering.  Don’t miss this signature event and I look forward to seeing you all in this conference!


Promoting Electrical Engineering among younger generations for sustainable development of the Division and the industry is always our priority task.  We shall continue to organise various programs such as our School Ambassador Programme, Energy Innovation for Smart City Project Competition and Electrical Model Design Contest to embrace all levels of student to raise their interests in electrical engineering.  In addition, we shall also bring in more young members to the Committee such that we could understand more on their needs and serve them better.  We shall also make use of different social media to further strengthen the communication with our younger members.


With the increasing interaction between Hong Kong and China electrical engineers under the greater bay area development and the Belt and Road Initiatives, the Division will grasp every opportunity to keep our members abreast of the latest development in these areas through various symposium, technical visits and seminars.


I am confident that with the dedication and unfailing support from the Committee members, the Division will continue to create values for our members. I appreciate your support and guidance throughout my chairmanship and I look forward to your active participation to the Division’s activities during the coming year.
