We all know our Old Boys engineers have taken part in many significant projects in Hong Kong, but hearing from them the true stories directly is something we would look forward to. 

The LSCOBA Young Members Subcommittee has invited three Old Boys in Engineering to share their experience and bittersweet moments to work in the Engineering sector. The guests are senior managers and professional engineers who have all-rounded experience in corporate, contractor and consultant, and their practices cover Civil Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Railway, and M&E Engineering fields.

Through our Old Boys engineers’ sharing, this would equip our Members with a broader understanding of the Engineering industry, we hope to inspire young Members especially for those who aspire to join the industry.
