Key Industry Experience

Ir Chang CS is a professional railway system engineer with 30 years of international project experience. CS possesses a wealth of knowledge and experience in the design, installation, testing and commissioning of multi-disciplinary and sophisticated railway systems as well as in the project management of mega size railway projects. Moreover, CS is instrumental in conducting critical reviews on train operation of mass transit railway and light rail with an aim to assess the ergonomic design and technical robustness for both new and existing railways. CS’s career in railway engineering has been diversified, leading to involvement in different areas of railway systems engineering and project development.

CS has abundant experience in the control system applications for railway operation and he has extensive experience in managing SCADA based control / management system works ranging from building management system (BMS) in stations, depots and control rooms to operational critical control on signalling, traction power and tunnel ventilation. He has proven experience in contract / project management covering the whole project lifecycle from tender formulation and evaluation, contractor management, testing & commissioning and system handover. His systematic approach on system interface management is one of the key attributes to the success of the implementation of such systems in the recent projects in Hong Kong and overseas.

CS has written and presented over 30 papers in various international conferences on system engineering, system interface management and system integration on SCADA system applications for railway and he was the Past Chairman of the Control, Automation and Instrumentation Division of Hong Kong Institution of Engineers and Past Chairman of the Institution of Electrical Engineers Hong Kong Branch.
