If you have a general engineering and/or science background, this course will provide you with the additional knowledge and skills required to become a power engineer.
If you already have an electrical engineering or electronics background, the course enables you to update your knowledge to include the latest developments in renewable energy (including energy from the environment) and smart grids, making use of modern sensing, communication and signal- processing technologies.
The programme consists of five core taught modules, covering the fundamental aspects of the modern power systems and energy conversion technologies that are core in renewable generation and energy storage. You’ll also select three modules (from a choice of six options) to study ‘non-electrical’ technologies that are crucial to the safe and reliable operation of power and energy systems. Alongside the taught modules, you’ll carry out a supervised research/development project that is relevant to real-world industrial needs.
