The 35th Annual Dinner and Scholarship Award Presentation of Institute of Industrial Engineers (HK Chapter) was held on September 25, 2015 at the World Trade Club in Causeway Bay. We were very honoured to have Ir Prof. Daniel M. Cheng, the Chairman of Federation of Hong Kong Industries and Founding President of the Hong Kong Environmental Industries Association, as our Guest of Honour. From his opening speech “The Global Transformer”, Daniel explained how industrial engineers, who possess a wide variety of engineering and managerial skills, are the most suitable group of people to be global transformers in all industries based on his personal experience.
We also invited Mr. Sunny Tse, the Regional Director (Hong Kong and Taiwan) of Rockwell Automation Asia Pacific Limited, to be the keynote speaker of this event. From his speech “The Connected Enterprise” he shared his knowledge on how “Smart Manufacturing”, which was enabled by the principles of Industry 4.0, was implemented in various parts of his organization and the benefits it brought over the recent years.
Finally I would like to congratulate all the students who received our scholarship awards and at the same time thank our sponsors for making this dinner and scholarship award possible.
