In 2008, Vocational Training Council (VTC) collaborated with Shenzhen Polytechnic (SZPT) in the introduction of a Higher Diploma in Electrical Services Engineering. As part of the collaboration, Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (IVE) students spent 2 out of 6 semesters studying at SZPT, and upon graduation, they were given 2 awards from VTC and SZPT separately. In co-ordination for the graduates of the New Academic Structure in 2012, VTC revamped all Higher Diploma Programmes as 2-year, 5-semester structure. The Higher Diploma in Electrical Services Engineering course was revamped and became a stream of the Higher Diploma in Electrical Engineering programme. This programme aims to provide students the technology, skills and related statutory requirements in the electrical services industries both in Mainland China and Hong Kong SAR. Upon graduation, graduates will be awarded with the Higher Diploma in Electrical Engineering by VTC, and also be awarded with the Higher Education Qualification Certificate (Electric Automation Technology) by SZPT. All new intake Higher Diploma students in Electrical Engineering will study the same teaching modules in semester 1 and 2. In semester 2, students may apply for the Electrical Services (ES) Stream programme which is collaborated between the Department of Electrical Engineering, IVE (Haking Wong) and SZPT. Students who are admitted in the ES stream programme will have their study in IVE (Haking Wong) in semester 3; and then in SZPT in semester 4 and 5. During their study, students are required to attend the examination of National Occupational Certificate in Electrical Maintenance (Intermediate Level).
