This MSc degree programme provides an excellent progression point from undergraduate courses in the area of electrical engineering. You can also complete the course as development and to specialise in the Electrical Power and Control Engineering field.
Did you know that there is growing demand for electrical power engineers in the energy, automotive, and process industries? You could be involved in the design and development of electrical systems, such as those found in hybrid vehicles, cooling systems and aircraft actuators or the generation, distribution, regulation and conversion of electrical power. You’ll develop advanced analytical and experimental skills to design new power and control systems and learn how to critically analyse designs, their functionality and expected reliability. It will also be important for you to gain a strong understanding of the capabilities and limitations of modelling and simulation tools.
The expertise and laboratories available are aligned to the new sources of energy, green energy and the energy saving industry. LJMU specialist facilities support investigation into wind power electricity generation, where wider penetration of remote off-shore wind farm installations is expected in near future and multi-phase systems have many advantages. The programme design provides opportunities to practice communication skills at Chartered Engineer level. You’ll gain the professional behavioural traits to prepare you for technical and management roles in power and control engineering.

Further guidance on modules
The information listed in the section entitled ‘What you will study’ is an overview of the academic content of the programme that will take the form of either core or option modules. Modules are designated as core or option in accordance with professional body requirements and internal Academic Framework review, so may be subject to change. Students will be required to undertake modules that the University designates as core and will have a choice of designated option modules. Additionally, option modules may be offered subject to meeting minimum student numbers.
Academic Framework reviews are conducted by LJMU from time to time to ensure that academic standards continue to be maintained. A review is currently in progress and will be operational for the academic year 2016/2017. Final details of this programme’s designated core and option modules will be made available on LJMU’s website as soon as possible and prior to formal enrolment for the academic year 2016/2017.
