The “CEM Electrical Engineering Training Course” officially kicked off at the University of Macau (UM). The opening ceremony was jointly officiated by Benjamin Yue, Principal Advisor to CEM Executive Committee, Professor Tam Kam Weng, Associate Dean of the Faculty of Science and Technology of the University of Macau and Professor Leung Shing On, Director of the Centre for Continuing Education of the University of Macau.
Speaking at the ceremony, Prof. Leung Shing On said that in addition to promoting academic development and the culture of lifelong learning, the cultivation of talents needed for Macau’s development is also an important mission for UM. The demand for electricity in Macau has been increasing rapidly in recent years, and it is indispensable to offer electrical engineers professional training because they stand at the forefront of the power supply industry, shouldering heavy responsibilities and having a direct bearing on the city’s social and economic development as well as people’s livelihood. The Centre for Continuing Education of UM is proud to organize “CEM Electrical Engineering Training Course” again and hoped students could take this opportunity to enhance their professional knowledge to make contributions to power development in Macau.
In his speech, Benjamin Yue said the 23 young engineers participating in the training course were from CEM’s four operational departments and all take up important jobs. Through this systematic training, their professional knowledge and skills in electricity will further be improved, which is conducive to their personal career development in the future and will lay a sound foundation for the sustainable development of CEM and the optimization of power supply services. Meanwhile, he expressed gratitude to UM’s Faculty of Science and Technology and the Centre for Continuing Education for their assistance, and wished the training course a complete success.
To improve its young engineers and executives’ professional knowledge about the power system and thus prepare them for future challenges and opportunities, CEM has partnered with the Faculty of Science and Technology and the Centre for Continuing Education of UM to organize the 12-session training course “CEM Electrical Engineering Training Course” for the third time since 2010. Experts and professors from Macau, Hong Kong, and the Mainland were invited to provide training courses for over 60 CEM engineers and executives.
In order to further improve the training program and bring training results closer to the actual needs of CEM, UM and CEM conducted a study and summary on the last electrical training course to improve the training program and content, teaching and assessment methods, and so on. Meanwhile, CEM even organized internal experts to teach more than half of the course, in a hope to help engineer trainees to grasp actual engineering demands and put what they have learned into practice effectively.
