The Competition invited engineering students from higher education institutions in Hong Kong and Mainland to form teams. Using self-designed and modified remote-control cars and robotic arms, teams competed in designated tasks at a field to win awards. The HKIE hopes that the event will deepen corporation and exchange among engineering institutions in the Greater Bay Area.

The Competition is one of the key events of the Hong Kong Engineers Week 2024. Today, the final was held at the Beach Volleyball Court of South China Athletic Association. A total of 20 local, Mainland and higher institutions formed 10 teams. Before the competition day, each team collaborated in programming and assembling two remote-control car and robotic arms, as well as constructing a bridge.

Various awards were competed for and judged by a panel.

The competition tests participants' engineering knowledge and skills, encouraging them to showcase their creativity and teamwork. After nearly 4 hours of competition, a joint team composed of the Hong Kong Metropolitan University and Shenzhen Institute of Technology Group emerged as the overall champions of the invitational competition tournament, winning a scholarship of HK$10,000.

The HKIE will continue to organise various activities to promote the exchange and cooperation among young engineers in the Greater Bay Area, contributing to the development of the country."

Ir Ricky Lau Chun kit, JP, Permanent Secretary for Development (Works), said "The Development Bureau has been proactively promoting exchanges and collaborations between the engineering sectors of the Mainland and Hong Kong to leverage Hong Kong's distinctive advantage of enjoying strong support of the motherland and being closely connected to the world, and participate in the infrastructure development in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) and the Belt and Road (B&R) Initiative countries and cities to promote the nation's high-quality engineering development. I am delighted to see many young talents here today. I look forward to more exchanges and interactions among tertiary students in the GBA, who play a bridging role in the collaboration of the two sides, facilitating the development of Hong Kong, serving the GBA and contributing to the betterment of our nation."
