Course summary

Course overview

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

It adds an advanced practice module to our one-year master’s and is an opportunity to enhance your qualification by an internship, research or study abroad experience.

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.

There are three routes you can select from to gain a postgraduate master’s award:

  • MSc Electrical Power and Energy Systems – one year full time
  • MSc Electrical Power and Energy Systems – two years part time
  • MSc Electrical Power and Energy Systems (with Advanced Practice) – two years full time

The one-year programme is a great option if you want to gain a traditional MSc qualification. The two-year master’s degree with advanced practice enhances your qualification by adding a vocational or research based internship to the one-year master’s programme. A vocational internship is a great way to gain work experience and give your CV a competitive edge. A research internship provides you with the opportunity to develop your analytical, team-working, research and academic skills by working alongside a research team in an academic setting. We guarantee a research internship, but cannot guarantee a vocational internship. We will, however, provide you with practical support and advice on how to find and secure your own vocational internship position should you prefer this type of internship.

Professional accreditation

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.

How you are assessed

Assessment varies from module to module. It may include in-course assignments, design exercises, technical reports, presentations or formal examinations. For your MSc project you prepare a dissertation.

Your Advanced Practice module is assessed by an individual written reflective report (3,000 words) together with a study or workplace log, where appropriate, and through a poster presentation.

Career opportunities

As an electrical power and energy systems engineer you can be involved in designing, constructing, commissioning and lifecycle maintenance of complex energy production, conversion and distribution systems.
