Aecom geotechnical engineer Johnny Cheuk was named 2013 Young Engineer of the Year by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) yesterday.

According to HKIE, the award recognises outstanding young engineers who have made commendable engineering achievements and valuable contributions to the continuous development of Hong Kong.
