Visit our website for more information on fees, scholarships, postgraduate loans and other funding options to study Power Engineering and Sustainable Energy at Swansea University - 'Welsh University of the Year 2017' (Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017).

The Master's course in Power Engineering and Sustainable Energy places strong emphasis on state-of-the-art semiconductor devices and technologies, advanced power electronics and drives, and advanced power systems. The Power Engineering and Sustainable Energy course also covers conventional and renewable energy generation technologies. Exciting new developments such as wide band gap electronics, energy harvesting, solar cells and biofuels are discussed and recent developments in power electronics are highlighted.

Key Features of MSc in Power Engineering and Sustainable Energy

The College of Engineering has an international reputation for electrical and electronics research for energy and advanced semiconductor materials and devices.

Greenhouse gas emission and, consequently, global warming are threatening the global economy and world as we know it. A non-rational use of electrical energy largely contributes to these.

Sustainable energy generation and utilisation is a vital industry in today’s energy thirsty world. Energy generation and conversion, in the most efficient way possible, is the key to reducing carbon emissions. It is an essential element of novel energy power generation system and future transportation systems. The core of an energy conversion system is the power electronics converter which in one hand ensures the maximum power capture from any energy source and on another hand controls the power quality delivered to grid. Therefore the converter parameters such as efficiency, reliability and costs are directly affecting the performance of an energy system.

Transmission and distribution systems will encounter many challenges in the near future. Decentralisation of generation and storage systems has emerged as a promising solution. Consequently, in the near future, a power grid will no longer be a mono-directional energy flow system but a bi-directional one, requiring a much more complex management.

The MSc in Power Engineering and Sustainable Energy is modular in structure. Students must obtain a total of 180 credits to qualify for the degree. This is made up of 120 credits in the taught element (Part One) and a project (Part Two) that is worth 60 credits and culminates in a written dissertation. Power Engineering and Sustainable Energy students must successfully complete Part One before being allowed to progress to Part Two.

Part-time Delivery mode

The part-time scheme is a version of the full-time equivalent MSc in Power Engineering and Sustainable Energy scheme, and as such it means lectures are spread right across each week and you may have lectures across every day. Due to this timetabling format, the College advises that the scheme is likely to suit individuals who are looking to combine this with other commitments (typically family/caring) and who are looking for a less than full-time study option.

Those candidates seeking to combine the part-time option with full-time work are unlikely to find the timetable suitable, unless their job is extremely flexible and local to the Bay Campus.

Modules

Modules on the MSc Power Engineering and Sustainable Energy course can vary each year but you could expect to study:

Advanced Power Electronics and Drives

Power Semiconductor Devices

Advanced Power Systems

Energy and Power Engineering Laboratory

Facilities

In addition to providing dedicated Mac and PC labs, we have specialist facilities for the whole range of courses. We’ve recently opened a Calypto lab, which has software licences and support for the Catapult C toolset. This is used to develop advanced electronic products, such as the next generation of smart phones, more quickly and cost-effectively and to help engineers overcome design challenges in the increasingly complex world of board and chip design. The lab is sponsored by Calypto Design Systems Inc, a leader in electronic design automation. We are one of only four UK universities and 60 universities globally that have been granted permission to use the software, worth £1.9m.

The Faculty’s new Renesas Embedded Systems lab comprises 25 new high-end terminals running cuttingedge tools. The facility was designed in collaboration with Renesas, the world’s leading supplier of microcontrollers, whose sponsorship helps ensure that students are always working with the latest technologies and development tools.

The Master’s programme in Electronics Engineering focuses on the  design of integrated circuits and System-on-Chip in advanced semiconductor technologies. This requires a broad spectrum of knowledge and skills across many fields within engineering and science.

The programme provides a competitive education in digital, analogue and radio-frequency (RF) integrated circuits (IC) and System-on-Chip (SoC) design, combined with in-depth knowledge in signal processing, application specific processors, embedded systems design, modern communications systems, and radio transceiver design.

Modern society depends on reliable and efficient electronics. Mobile phones, the Internet, computers and TVs are just a few examples that constantly improve in terms of functionality, performance and cost. In addition, a growing number of concepts and technologies significantly improve areas such as mobile and broadband communication, healthcare, automotive technology, robotics, energy systems management, entertainment, consumer electronics, public safety and security, industrial applications, and much more. This suggests that there will be vast industrial opportunities in the future, and a high demand for skilled engineers with the knowledge and skills required to lead the design of such complex integrated circuits and systems.

World-class research activities

The programme is organised by several strong divisions at the Department of Electrical Engineering and the Department of Computer and Information Science. These divisions, which include more than 60 researchers and 10 internationally recognised professors, have excellent teaching experience, world-class research activities that cover nearly the entire field of integrated electronic design, state-of-the-art laboratories and design environments, and close research collaboration with many companies worldwide.

Design-project courses with the latest software

The programme starts with courses in digital communication, digital integrated circuits, digital system design, analogue integrated circuits, and an introduction to radio electronics, providing a solid base for the continuation of the studies.

Later on, a large selection of courses enables students to choose between two major tracks:

  • System-on-Chip, with a focus on digital System-on-Chip design and embedded systems
  • Analogue/Digital and RF IC design, with a focus on the design of mixed analogue/digital and radio-frequency integrated circuits.

The programme offers several large design-project courses, giving excellent opportunities for students to improve their design skills by using the state-of-the-art circuit and system design environments and the CAD tools used in industry today. For instance, students who take the course VLSI Design will design real chips using standard CMOS technology that will be sent for fabrication, measured and evaluated in a follow-up course. Only a few universities in the world have the know-how and capability to provide such courses.

The MSc Power Electronics, Machines and Drives is a flexible study programme designed for UK industrially-based, part-time students. It enables you to combine traditional classroom-based study with modern web-based distance learning.
This part-time MSc was originally set up with EPSRC funding to provide a training programme in power electronics, machines and drives, and their applications. The course material is regularly reviewed and updated to meet the needs of engineers in industry.

The control and conversion of electric power using solid-state techniques are now commonplace in both the domestic and industrial environments. A recent estimate suggested that over 40% of all electric power generated passes through silicon before reaching its final destination.

A knowledge and understanding of the diverse disciplines encompassed by power electronics, machines and motor drives - devices, converters, control theory and motor drive systems - is therefore essential to all power engineers.

This course aims to provide a specialist education in power electronics, machines and drives techniques, covering key fundamental principles along with modern applications and current practices.
