MSc Energy and Power Engineering

Course Description

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.

Course Structure

The MSc degree (totalling 180 credits) comprises:
-Eight taught modules (15 credits each), five core modules and three optional modules (see below)
-A research project worth 60 credits (see below)

Core modules

-Electrical Machines and Drives
-Fuel Cells and Energy Storage
-Operation and Control of Power Systems
-Power Electronic Converters and Devices
-Renewable Energy from the Environment

Optional modules (choose 3)

-ASICs, MEMS and Smart Devices
-Heat Transfer Theory and Design
-Optical Communication Systems
-Signal & Image Processing
-Systems Modelling and Simulation
-Antenna, Propagation and Wireless Communication Theory

Individual project

The individual research project is an in-depth experimental, theoretical or computational investigation of a topic chosen by you in conjunction with an academic supervisor.
