The Power Systems Engineering MSc is designed to provide students with the necessary knowledge and skills to work at a professional level in industries involved in the production, distribution and consumption of energy and power. This wide range of industries includes transport, conventional and renewable power generation.
The first two academic terms consist of taught modules, followed by examinations just before Easter.
Students take 6 compulsory modules.
Students take 1 optional modules.
The second part of the programme, from Easter to September, is spent on an individual project under the supervision of a member of academic staff. The student normally selects the project from a list of projects proposed by the department’s staff and in the majority of cases the work has some input from industry. In some cases students may suggest their own project topic provided a member of staff is willing to adopt and supervise that project. The output from good projects is regularly presented at conferences and published in journals.
