The participants clad in neat uniform swore in as “Power Elites”, pledging to shoulder their responsibilities and assume the important role of partaking in activities to be held by CEM actively as well as promoting electricity knowledge on campuses in the coming year.

Iun Iok Meng said that CEM is well aware of the importance of teaching the next generation to cherish power resources. Hence, CEM has been striving to promote power information on campuses, with the view of enabling students to develop good habits in power utilization starting from childhood, as it is of vital importance to students’ capability as well as the future development of the society. In addition to helping elites establish correct concepts on energy saving and environmental protection, the Program can further deepen their understanding of electricity and arouse their interest in electrical energy. The Program will enable the Elites to learn about local power generation process and the daily work of CEM engineers, as well as allow them to visit Hong Kong and mainland China to learn and exchange in order to broaden their horizon, which will be a valuable experience. It is hoped that students can cherish the opportunity and study hard.
