About this event

Telecommunications is one of the largest employment sectors in Hong Kong. With the rapid pace of technology evolution, typically the convergence of audio, video and data network, and the foreseeable trend in extensive deployment of Big Data, IoT, Cloud Initiative, AR and VR, many conventional Telecom job types are rendered obsolete and redundant.
This seminar will seek to explore how engineers would seek development in this career sector despite the uncertainty. The talk will compose of two parts: A senior practitioner will give an overview of the industry followed by an experienced Chartered Telecom Engineer who will share his insights, career development in the fast-paced environment and professional development.
