This course is designed to address the need for specialist highly skilled engineers in the expanding and employable area of electrical power engineering and related technologies. You gain a solid foundation in engineering principles and general electrical/electronic systems before progressing onto specialist modules to develop your knowledge in electrical power, sustainable/renewable energy and power electronics. Throughout the course, you are supported in applying your academic studies, using industry standard hardware and software, with hands on practical laboratory project work. Your lab work builds your confidence in testing, design prototyping and investigative projects. You are also introduced to our research laboratories and learn to create practical solutions for complex engineering challenges, such as assistive robotics, solar cell optimisation and electronic sensors. As well as specialist knowledge, you gain the professional and personal skills for a successful career in industry and commercial engineering enterprises. You also develop your project management skills and your ability to plan, organise and manage resources. **Placements and work experience** During year three, you have the opportunity to do a paid placement with a national or multinational corporation, including • Siemens • Servelec • Serck Controls Ltd • TBG Solutions • S3-ID • Renishaw • National Instruments. **Facilities** Throughout the course, you are encouraged to connect academic theory, simulation and case studies with practical laboratory project work. For the practical elements of the course, you are based in dedicated laboratories for • electrical power • instrumentation • control • electronics • communications • computer networks • embedded systems. We enjoy using industry standard test equipment and development tools and you are supported when you start to use theories and apply them to what you have learnt.
