Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (IVE) and Hong Kong Design Institute (HKDI) offers different types of watch design and technology courses each year to build a good foundation for Hong Kong students to enter the industry.

At the same time, design competition is also considered as an important channel for the designers and students. Designers can share their latest design concepts with stakeholders in the industry. Through these platforms, students can demonstrate their abilities and creations to the fashion world. The industry’s predecessors could also provide valuable advice and fueling reality into their design. The talents of the students thus can be fully developed. Hong Kong Watch & Clock Fair includes the Hong Kong Watch and Clock Design Competition, which encourages creativity, aiming to recruit talents, nurture new blood and designers for the watch and clock industry. Similarly, the China Blue Light Cup Horologe Design Competition helps to promote creativity in the industry in the mainland and Hong Kong.
