Course Summary

This programme is for graduate engineers wishing to work in the electrical power industry. It develops your knowledge of electrical power and energy systems, giving you a good understanding of the latest developments and techniques within the electrical power industry. The programme is centred around three major themes: electrical power networks with emphasis on conventional networks, smart grids, high voltage direct current transmission and asset management of network infrastructure; renewable energies with emphasis on wind and solar power; power electronics with emphasis on power electronic convertors in converting and controlling power flows in electrical networks and renewable energy systems. Your work could include energy storage systems, management and efficient use of energy in building, manufacturing and processing systems. You could also be involved in work relating to the environmental and economic impact of energy usage. Students will also achieve PgDip awards in this course.

Modules

This is the culmination of the programme of studies. You undertake a challenging problem related substantially to your discipline. The project is linked where possible to an industrial or external partner organisation, which may even host your work and substantially direct the activity. Where this is not possible, a real or simulated real problem may be chosen as the subject for the work. It is, however, expected that even where the problem is simulated or hypothetical, it will be treated as if real. The project outcomes should be at a publishable standard.
