Programmes run at the CLP Power Academy in cooperation with other education institutions will have an emphasis on practical training. Classroom lectures will be supplemented by practical sessions, giving students the opportunity to have hands-on experience of power equipment in workshops to ensure they are fully trained and able to make good use of the skills they learn. Visits to power facilities and CLP Power work sites will be arranged as well as guest lectures and job shadowing to provide students with valuable experience of working in the power industry.
CLP Power Academy will be offering Hong Kong’s first joint academic and industry-run dual master’s degree programme. CLPA, in collaboration with The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) and University of Strathclyde (UoS), is launching the part-time Dual Master’s Degree with the aims to help existing and aspiring engineers deepen their knowledge about power engineering in an initiative to nurture more professionals and promote research into the application of innovation and technology in the power industry. The Dual Master’s Degree programme would allow engineers and would-be engineers to obtain a Master of Philosophy (MPhil) from HKUST and a Master of Science (MSc) qualifications from UoS in just two and a half years.
The dual master’s degree programme contains elements of academic research combined with professional practice, covering specific knowledge of power system operation and management along with the application of the latest innovation and technology, such as big data analytics, IoT technology and artificial intelligence.
UoS Master’s programme will be delivered through distance learning. Students under the HKUST Master’s programme will be guided by an academic advisor from HKUST and a local industry advisor from CLP or other related companies. Students would benefit most from this academic-industry collaboration for their career advancement.
The Programme will commence in September 2019 and application will begin in March/April 2019. For details, please refer to the course leaflet.
CLP Power Academy collaborates with Vocational Training Council (VTC) again to develop the Diploma in Power Engineering Programme (at QF Level 3 by VTC), signifying another major milestone in youth engagement by offering S3 or above school leavers, who have one-year working experience in any trade, an entry point to the power industry and a vocational and professional training development path for upward mobility.
Graduates of this Diploma programme with sufficient working experience may apply for Grade A REW. This Diploma Programme also qualifies graduates for articulation to the Professional Diploma in Power Engineering programme (at QF Level 4 by VTC) and then further to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Electrical Engineering programme by PolyU SPEED in partnership with CLP Power Academy (at QF Level 5 by PolyU SPEED) so as to enhance their career prospects in the electrical and mechanical industry.
Applicant, who has completed S3 with 1-year working experience, is required to complete the Certificate for Junior Electricians programme first before the start of Diploma in Power Engineering programme. For details, please visit VTC’s webpage and download the programme leaflet.
CLP Power Academy works in partnership with the School of Professional Education and Executive Development of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU SPEED) to launch the part-time Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Electrical Engineering programme, commenced in September 2018.
The programme is the first top-up bachelor’s honours degree programme offered by PolyU SPEED in partnership with a public utility. The content of the programme, integrated with academic and practical training, is kept abreast of the time. It offers in-depth coverage of electrical engineering, including specific knowledge of power transmission and distribution systems. Students will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience of power equipment at CLP Power Academy and visit the power facilities or work sites of CLP Power.
For programme details, please visit the website of PolyU SPEED and download the programme brochure.
The first part-time programme, a Professional Diploma in Power Engineering, is offered jointly with the Vocational Training Council (VTC). This collaborative effort between CLP Power Academy and VTC gives E&M tradespeople the opportunity to advance their careers by gaining a further qualification and improving their career knowledge by professional and vocational training in a practical manner. On completion of the programme, graduates will be awarded “Professional Diploma in Power Engineering” (at QF Level 4 by VTC) and Competent Person in CLP Power. The graduates who have already registered as Grade B or Grade C Registered Electrical Workers (REW) can register as Grade H REW.
The programme is divided into two streams: Power Systems Stream and Power Plants Stream:
