Course content

MSc SENSE develops your skills in electrical power engineering, innovation processes and entrepreneurship in the emerging field of Smart Grids. Its industry involvement gives students a broad industrial network plus the ability to combine engineering and entrepreneurship and develop their ability to analyse possibilities and risks from both a technical and business perspective.

MSc SENSE focuses on understanding, modelling and analysing the principles behind electric power generation, transmission, distribution and utilisation on a broad scale. Topics range from the design, operation, control and monitoring of individual components to national power systems in their entirety.

MSc SENSE focuses strongly on entrepreneurship and creating businesses from innovations. As well as activities integrated in ‘smart electrical networks and systems’, other events such as study visits and seminars are also provided. The programme is based on strong interaction with its industrial and research partners, who can be found all over Europe and throughout the world. Examples of industrial partners include ABB, Vattenfall and IREC.
