My name is Edwin Kwang, and I am the Head of Project Incubation in EWB KTH.
I studied my bachelor degree at the University of Hong Kong, and I pursue my Master degree in Civil and Architectural Engineering in KTH. I am also involved in IAESTE Stockholm and Green Week 2020.
Why did you choose to get involved with EWB? In Hong Kong, I worked in a volunteering organisation called Project Mingde. We design and build essential infrastructures such as bridges, schools and toilets in underprivileged provinces in Mainland China and Vietnam. In the future development of the world, we have to focus more on sustainable growth and innovation. I understand that EWB could offer me opportunities to use my professional knowledge to contribute to society and those in need. Last year, I enjoyed thoroughly in the project incubation team and therefore decided to join the management team this year.
What does team Project Incubation do? Project Incubation team is the cradle of international projects. We initiate new project ideas and propose them to the International Project Committee. We draft, outline and develop a rough idea into a solid project proposal, connecting the dots to the local authorities and partners, doing feasibility studies and presenting recommendations as well as guiding directions for the continuation of the project.
