Course Summary

This programme considers aspects of sustainable energy generation and the issues concerned with bulk electrical energy transport to the ultimate user. In order to design and develop our future energy networks, we must have knowledge and understanding of the current infrastructure.

The programme provides a solid grounding in generation, transmission and distribution engineering and considers the wider issues of energy, renewable generation and sustainability. Potential students should have a first degree in engineering, physics or applied mathematics. The programme is particularly relevant for students considering a career in the electrical power industry.


Semester one: Power Systems Analysis; Power Generation – Technology and Impact on Society; Transmission and Distribution; Fundamental Principles of Energy.

Semester two: Advanced Electrical Materials; High Voltage Insulation Systems; Power Electronics for DC Transmission; Mechanical Power Transmission and Vibration; Green Electronics; Nuclear Energy Technology; Renewable Energy from Environmental Flows; Bioenergy.

Plus three-month independent research project culminating in a dissertation.
