Honorary Doctor of Science Degree – UNB

MAY 30, 2013 — Joseph Ng, Chair of the JNE Group of Companies, proudly received an Honorary Doctor of Science Degree from the University of New Brunswick. Joe had previously graduated from the University with a degree in Electrical Engineering in 1973. He was honoured to receive this most recent Degree in the presence of its current graduating class along with his family. Congratulations Joe!

Joe Ng graduated from electrical engineering at UNB in 1973. In 1980, Mr. Ng incorporated his own engineering consulting company as Joe Ng Engineering Ltd. Due to the recession in North America in 1982, he also began to look at markets outside of North America and subsequently developed successfully into China.

Joe Ng Engineering Ltd. provides international trade services, while JNE Consulting Ltd. was established and registered as a separate consulting practice in the province of Ontario in 1994.  Today, JNE Consulting continues to meet local engineering needs, while also providing international consulting services on projects in Mexico, Columbia, Serbia, Saudi Arabia, Germany, Japan and China.

Over the past 32 years, Mr. Ng has transformed his business from a one-person operation, into a company that currently employs close to 400 employees.  Office locations include Hamilton (4 locations), Pittsburgh, Shanghai and Beijing.

In recent years, Mr. Ng has started to contribute more of his time and effort to supporting the local community such as McMaster University, the University of Waterloo, the Hamilton Art Gallery, the Hamilton Health Science Foundation, and the local United Way.
