The China Hong Kong Society for Trenchless Technology (CHKSTT) is an organisation whose objectives are to promote the use of trenchless technology for the benefit of the public. It is one of a family of over twenty societies throughout the world which are affiliated to the International Society for Trenchless Technology (ISTT) and thus has excellent links with the much wider international community of trenchless practitioners and researchers.

In order to further promote the use and development of trenchless technology in Hong Kong, the CHKSTT has decided to offer an annual award to a young engineer in order that he or she might broaden his/her knowledge and horizons of the use of trenchless methods by spending some time in another country studying or practising trenchless technology.

The award

The award will be up to HK$7,000 to fund overseas travel to attend the upcoming Singapore International Water Week to be held from 1 to 5 July, 2012. The price shall be reimbursed to the candidate based on the actual cost of expenditures including air flight, accommodation, cost of enrollment for SIWW etc.


Applicants must be a student member of CHKSTT, aged under 35 years old on 31st December 2012, and have been employed/studied in some areas of work related to trenchless technology – for example, utility investigation, trenchless installation of conduits or cables, trenchless rehabilitation of pipes, inspection and/or condition assessment of buried conduits. Applicants must also be a student member of CHKSTT at the time of application
