MSc Advanced Power Engineering

MSc Degree Programme: 

The two-year MSc programme in Advanced Power Engineering is designed to train power engineers in the most current developments in the field, and help them develop fundamental and applied research skills through a combination of:

  • taught modules
  • workshops
  • a comprehensive research dissertation carried out during the second year of the programme
  • support from the internationally-leading experts of the Institute for Energy Systems

Our academics regularly lead or participate in large, multi-institutional and multi-national research projects in the area of electrical power engineering. The learning experience is augmented by a number of supporting activities delivered throughout the duration of the programme.

How will I learn?

Graduates will be equipped with specialised knowledge associated with the individual modules within the programme, and will develop a deep understanding of advanced power engineering concepts fostered throughout the programme and obtained from the supplementary training activities, study projects and the 2nd year research project.

The first year of the programme develops from fundamental topics and research tools and techniques in electrical power engineering, to specialist courses on emerging technologies and advanced numerical methods for power engineering problems.

Research project

Following the summer break, the second year of the programme is fully dedicated to the Masters research project.

In close collaboration with academics and researchers of the Institute for Energy Systems, you will put into practice the knowledge and skills acquired during the first year, in application to an actual power engineering problem.

For the research project there is an option to carry it out within either:

  • one of our power research groups, working alongside academics and researchers of the Institute for Energy Systems
  • an industrial placement at a collaborating company in the power sector.
