The world demand for energy, in particular electricity, will increase significantly over the next decade and beyond. There are many challenges to be addressed in order to meet this ever-increasing demand, electrical and electronic engineers will provide key solutions to these problems.
There are tremendous opportunities for us to make a significant impact that will shape the future, and this programme has been carefully designed and developed for this.
Our degree programmes are developed with industry partners to provide you with a career focused degree.
This programme provides you with an in-depth knowledge of the electrical power generation, transmission, distribution and networks. The operating principles, monitoring, optimisation and control of modern power systems are discussed in detail.
The environmental challenges, renewable energy generation, smart grid, high voltage power engineering and research and management skills are also addressed in this one-year programme. In addition, site visit and practical sessions are included. The programme has been carefully developed for graduates with electrical/electronic or related backgrounds to meet the increasing demand from the energy and power industry.
Our postgraduate students get to be a part of the cutting edge research projects being undertaken by our academic staff. Here are some of the areas these projects cover:-
Molecular and semiconductor integrated circuit electronics
Digital signal processing
Free electron lasers
Energy efficient systems
You’ll get plenty of industry exposure too. Our industrial partners include ARM Holdings Plc, a top 200 UK company that specialises in microprocessor design and development.
As a result our postgraduates have an impressive record of securing employment after graduation in a wide range of careers not limited to engineering.
