The main objective of the programme is to train the next generation of electrical power engineers who:
- are aware of the most recent, cutting edge developments in power engineering;
- have skills and training needed for both industrial and academic settings;
- are able to tackle the global energy trilemma of supplying secure, equitable and environmentally sustainable energy, appreciating the technical, social and economic challenges faced in both developed and developing countries.
This one year programme will immerse the students in the most current developments associated with these trends, through a combination of taught modules, workshops, a research dissertation, and a number of supporting activities delivered by the internationally leading experts in the field. The programme will develop throughout the year from advanced fundamental topics and research tools and techniques in electrical power engineering, to specialist courses on emerging technologies and advanced numerical methods for power engineering problems, to the summer dissertation projects where the acquired skills in various areas are put into practice in application to an actual power engineering problem.
