Course content

Renewable energy and reducing carbon emissions are top of the global environmental agenda. This masters programme is designed to address the fundamentals of renewable energy and shows how solar, wind and other energy sources can work harmoniously and be efficiently integrated into practical power systems.

You will study core power engineering topics such as power converters, electric drives and control alongside modules specific to renewable energy sources and power system.

At the same time, you will study a unique range of modules on the generation of electricity from solar and wind power, energy management through the applications of power electronics and comprehensive analysis of smart grid systems. You will also explore the opportunity to address the control and management issues in modern energy systems.

You will be prepared to meet the renewable energy challenges and problems in a wide range of careers.

Course highlights

  • Our courses are shaped by our world-leading research in areas such as Smart energy systems, Wireless communications and Communications networks and systems.
  • During your studies, you will access specialist facilities and laboratories.
  • There are lots of opportunities for you to work alongside our academics and get involved in the research happening in the School.
  • Small groups and examples classes are used to support the teaching, so you get regular feedback from the academic staff helping you solve any problems that you might have with a particular topic.

Specialist facilities

Our School is an exciting and stimulating environment where you will learn from leading researchers in specialist teaching facilities with high-quality test and measurement equipment. These include our Keysight Technologies Electronics Laboratory and Arm Embedded Systems Laboratory. During your final project, you will be able to work in the NXP Electronics Project Laboratory. Depending on your project topic, you may also get to work in our specialist research laboratories.

Accreditation

The MSc is 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.

Accreditation is the assurance that a university course meets the quality standards established by the profession for which it prepares its students. For this course, these are the quality standards set by the IET.
