University of Edinburgh: Advanced Power Engineering
|Institution||University of Edinburgh View institution profile|
|Department||School of Engineering|
The two-year MSc programme in Advanced Power Engineering is designed to train power engineers in the most current developments in the field, and help them develop fundamental and applied research skills through a combination of taught modules, workshops and a comprehensive research dissertation carried out during the second year of the programme, supported by the internationally leading experts of the Institute for Energy Systems. Our academics regularly lead or participate in large, multi-institutional and multi-national research projects in the area of electrical power engineering. The learning experience is augmented by a number of supporting activities delivered throughout the duration of the programme.
Graduates will be equipped with specialised knowledge associated with the individual modules within the programme, and will develop a deep understanding of advanced power engineering concepts fostered throughout the programme and obtained from the supplementary training activities, study projects and dissertations.
The first year of the programme develops from 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.
Following the summer break, the second year of the programme is fully dedicated to the Masters research project, where the students, in close collaboration with academics and researchers of the Institute for Energy Systems, put into practice the knowledge and skills acquired during the first year, in application to an actual power engineering problem. For the research project there is an option to either carry it out within one of our power research groups, or as an industrial placement at a collaborating company in the power sector.
