Electrical Power Engineering

Gain the theoretical and practical skills in power generation and distribution to pursue a career in electrical power industries. Our course develops your expertise in areas where power engineers are in demand such as smart grids, micro-generation and renewable energy. Your first two years provide you with a grounding in the principles of electrical engineering science before specialising in power engineering. You'll develop an understanding of the technical, industrial and economic challenges of designing and manufacturing modern electrical power devices. Combining theory and practice, you’ll learn how to use advanced technologies to conceptualise, design and operate power and energy systems. Group and individual projects give you the chance to work on specialist topics like smart metering, electrical drives, or advanced signal processing. The technical, teamwork and management experience you gain will prepare you for a career in the power industry. Our partnership with the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) Power Academy gives you access to scholarships and placements with top companies. Choosing the MEng route gives you a more in-depth study experience through advanced taught units and semester-long individual and group project work. It also gives you the educational requirements you need to become a Chartered Engineer.
