Course content

This programme is for graduate engineers wishing to work in the electrical power industry. It develops your knowledge of electrical power and energy ystems, giving you a good understanding of the latest developments and techniques within the electrical power industry.

This course has been specifically designed to facilitate further learning for those involved in, or with an interest in, the field of electrical power engineering including the renewable energy systems sector. The course comprises five 20 credit subject specialist modules.

The course aims to deepen the students’ knowledge of subject areas previously studied as part of their first degree (i.e. electrical engineering). The course is built around two discipline specific specialist threads and one future facing thread.

The specialist threads are electrical power networks (comprising: Smart Grids, Microgrids, Future Energy Demand) and power electronic applications (comprising: Renewable Energy Generation, Power Conversion for Energy Systems, Microgrids). These specialist threads have been chosen to provide employment opportunities in a wide range of industries especially in the electrical power engineering sector, but additionally electrical power system skills for related renewable energy industries.

Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Candidates must hold a CEng accredited BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree to comply with full CEng registration requirements
