Course Summary

On Electrical Power Engineering MSc you will gain the knowledge and skills for a career in power engineering.

Course Overview

Qualified electrical engineers are desperately needed by the power industry. There is also a severe shortage of power engineering expertise in other sectors, such as government bodies and finance organisations, where a detailed knowledge of energy supply and demand is increasingly important. This shortage comes as societies develop and adapt to pressing environmental and economic constraints, dwindling reserves of fossil fuels, and the emergence of new energy technologies. This course will give you the knowledge and skills required for a career in power engineering and is an opportunity to update your knowledge with the latest developments in renewable energy and smart grids.

Assessment

A combination of coursework and written examinations.

Careers

Graduates from these courses have gone on to work for employers including: AECOM, BAE Systems, BT, Morgan Sindall, Mott MacDonald, Proto Labs, TSP Projects and Volvo Cars Corporation. They have pursued roles such as: business, research and administrative professionals; civil engineers; design and development engineers; mechanical engineers; quality control and planning engineers.

Our department has a dedicated professionally qualified Senior Careers Consultant offering impartial advice and guidance together with workshops and events throughout the year. Previous examples of workshops and events include:
