Course content

This course, suitable for both practicing engineers and those considering a career in engineering, has been designed to provide an in-depth insight into the technical workings, management and economics of the electrical power industry.
Due to the introduction of tough environmental laws, the use and integration of renewable energy schemes have become of paramount importance in order for nations to meet strict low pollution targets. Knowledge of the impact of such schemes on the existing electrical grid structure is covered in great detail. Power systems design, power systems management and economics, power systems simulation and power conditioning are all addressed on the course.
Modules are delivered by academics actively involved in energy related research, as well as visiting lecturers from the power industry who provide a valuable insight into the operation of energy companies.
The programme has been developed for graduates with electrical/electronic or related engineering or scientific backgrounds to meet the increasing demand from the energy and power industry.
There is a consistent emphasis on industry in this course. Students learn from academic staff and visiting lecturers: one such visiting lecturer, from UK Power Networks, leads two modules and brings professional expertise and industry-relevant material to the degree. Students also learn to use power industry-standard software, including DigSilent and Neplan. The academic delivery of the course is supplemented by the use of City's new power-related laboratory equipment.
