Introduction to the Power Systems Engineering MSc programme
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 at the end of term 2 in March.
Students take 6 compulsory modules.
- MECH0053 Power Transmission and Auxiliary Machinery Systems
- MECH0071 Electrical Power Systems and Electrical Propulsion
- MECH0062 Electrical Machines and Power Electronic Drives
- MECH0032 New and Renewable Energy Systems
- MSIN0068 Project Management

Students take 1 optional module.
The second part of the programme, from March 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.
