The Challenge of Retirement Wave and Lack of New Bloods for Succession

Apart from the aircraft maintenance sector experienced hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, the impact of the pandemic to the Electrical and Mechanical Services Industry was relatively mild.  The industry is facing the challenge of retirement wave and lack of new bloods for succession. To this end, the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department has stepped up their recruitment of technician trainees in recent year, and the trainees were arranged with a 30-month workplace attachment in the private sectors.  Adoption of new construction technologies such as Building Information Modelling (BIM), Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA), and Modular Integrated Construction (MiC) is the worldwide trend; in-service practitioners and engineering discipline-related students are highly recommended to equip with relevant knowledge and skills to improve their competitiveness.
