Take time to admire a building's hidden wonders

Whether looking up at a splendidly structured building, or comfortably spending your working hours inside one, it is easy to marvel at the skill and ingenuity of architects who give the building its shape and outlook.

HKIE-accreditation makes the professional

ACADEMIC KNOWLEDGE and training may only constitute half of what it takes to be an engineer in Hong Kong. An 'official blessing' from the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) is the other part that marks an engineer as a professional in their field.

Extra safeguards for life and property

SAY 'FIRE' AND most people think of intense heat, danger and property damage.

The threat of fire is ever present in today's complex, densely built and highly wired world, and the more expertise there is in fire prevention and containment the better. Last year, the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers introduced fire engineering as a new discipline.

Slope safety

Every cloud has a silver lining, it is said. And the deluge that caused the collapse of the slope at Shekkipmei Estate and the evacuation and rehousing of 700 residents has at least lifted into view problems inherent in the system of checking slopes.

The debate that has ensued is not before time.

Graduates offered professional training

Fresh engineering graduates will be required to have experience and training before they become competent professionals in Hong Kong's engineering sector.

Employers are likely to look for those who possess the necessary theoretical knowledge; related skills; the right attitude; the desire to learn by experience and ability to work in a team.

Rail views not HKIE's

In the first paragraph of the article 'Plan links airport line to Tuen Mun' (South China Morning Post, March 1), it was stated that the Western Corridor Railway should be dropped in favour of a rail link between the northwest New Territories and urban areas, according to the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE).

Contradictory proposals

I WOULD like to put my full support behind John Boyd's letter headlined, 'Amendment bill is unjust' (South China Morning Post, December 22), giving the official view of the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers.

Wanting competent engineers to join

I REFER to the letter from Barbara Ng, which appeared in the South China Morning Post, on September 8.

Barbara Ng is quite right in saying that landslides have always been a problem for Hong Kong. This has been compounded by the rapid urbanisation, with many building developments near slopes, and by severe weather.

Significant role to play

ON May 7, the Sunday Morning Post published an article which said that, 'Local professional bodies have begun moves to break their links with Britain in the run up to 1997'.

Setting the highest standard

YOUR article ''Testing Time for Trades'' (South China Morning Post, October 7) was misleading in stating that the conduct of professional examinations and the consequent award of qualifications are done almost exclusively by overseas bodies. For the engineering profession in particular it is completely inaccurate.
