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.

Diploma in Power Engineering

CLP Power Academy collaborates with the Vocational Training Council (VTC) to develop the Diploma in Power Engineering Programme (at QF Level 3 by VTC), signifying a 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 engineering 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 one-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.

Professional Diploma in Power Engineering

The 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.

The admission requirements for the programme are five HKCEE subjects at Grade E / Level 2 or above, including English Language and Chinese Language or equivalent, and equipped with 2 years relevant working experience; or

Hold a QF Level 3 qualification or equivalent with breadth comparable to the HKDSE or HKCEE levels, and equipped with 2 years relevant working experience; or

for applicants over 21 years old with 2 years relevant working experience, may be admitted subject to passing an interview and / or aptitude test, if necessary. Preference will be given to those applicants who are holding a Grade B or Grade C certificate under Cap. 406D Electricity (Registration) Regulations.

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:

  • Power Systems Stream covers aspects of design, installation, testing and commissioning, operation and maintenance of the transmission and distribution equipment with the subjects on Protection and Control System, Cables, Overhead Lines, Plant Equipment, also Planning & Design. For details, please click here to watch the video.
  • Power Plants Stream not only focuses on providing basic and practical knowledge of power plant major electrical and mechanical equipment, process control and instrumentation, it also provides fundamentals in engineering materials and process chemistry for frontline practitioner covering a wide spectrum of subjects such as high tech gas turbine, large steam boiler and turbine, high performance generator and transformer, various types of pump and motor, DCS and PLC, material selection and application, boiler water and waste water treatment, Selective Catalytic Reactor (SCR) and desulphurization Plant, etc.
  • For details, please visit VTC's webpage and download the programme leaflet.

    Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Electrical Engineering

    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.

    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, distribution systems and renewable energy. 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.

    Enrollment is open now. For programme application, please click here. For details, please download the programme leaflet

    Dual Master’s Degree (MPhil and MSc)

    CLP Power Academy, in collaboration with The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) and University of Strathclyde (UoS), are offering Hong Kong’s first joint academic and industry-run 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 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.

    Enrollment is open now. For details, please visit the programme's website and download the leaflet.

    Other Programmes

    By working with a variety of education institutions, the CLP Power Academy aims to develop more engineering programmes to further raise industry standards and nurture the talent we need for Hong Kong’s sustainable development and growth.
