In memory of Ir HO Siu Kwong


The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers expresses our deepest sorrow over the passing away of Ir Ho Siu Kwong on 9 February 2022.


Much of our fond memories about Ir Ho is his great knowledge in engineering, his selfless devotion to the profession, his patience and great heart for inspiring the young generation.


Ir Ho served the HKIE as the Chairman of Electrical Division for Session 2014/2015 and on many professional and technical boards. During his tenure as the Chairman and his long service in the Division, amid the effort to support the development of professional engineers, Ir Ho paid particular attention to build collaboration with schools and led his team to launch engaging activities for science students on innovation projects, the first out-reach campaign of its kind of the Division in encouraging young people to find engineering fun in study and to pursue engineering as a career.


Ir Ho was further appointed to the Council in 2016 and served as a member in the Executive for Session 2017/2018. Well recognised by his own profession, he was appointed to the Discipline Advisory Panel to steer qualification standard for training and admission of electrical engineers since 2016 until his passing.


All these accomplishments were propelled by Ir Ho’s tireless efforts to help others. He always put others’ wants and needs before his own. The knowledge and compassion he shared will be passed on and treasured by hearts.


Ir Ho is survived by his wife and his precious twins. He will be deeply missed by his fellow engineers who had the privilege of knowing him.


May his soul rest in peace.
