Sustainable Electrical Power Systems Engineering

The University of Manchester · School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Entry requirements

We require a good Upper Second Class Honours degree or international equivalent in an electrical and electronic engineering discipline. When assessing your academic record, we take into account your grade average with particular emphasis on relevant course units and the standing of the institution where you studied your qualification.

Students who meet most but not all of the above criteria may be considered for an alternative entry route into the MSc, where the first two units are taken as training courses. When assessing you for this we will take into account relevant industrial experience, as well as your full academic record. If these are passed then transfer to the MSc will be considered by the exam board (exam boards sit every 6 months, hence students will have to take a break from studies, normally for 3 months, while waiting for the exam board's decision).

Months of entry
