Course content

This programme considers aspects of sustainable energy generation as well the issues concerned with bulk electrical energy transport to the ultimate user. In order to design and develop our future energy networks, we need knowledge and understanding of the current infrastructure. The programme provides a solid grounding in generation, transmission and distribution engineering and considers the wider issues of energy, renewable generation and sustainability. Potential students should have a first degree in engineering, physics or applied mathematics. The programme is particularly relevant for students considering a career in the electrical power industry.
