Integrated Postgraduate Programmes

1 year MSc / 2-year MSc / PhD Programmes

The 1-year Electrical Power Systems Masters/MSc is good, the 2-year Electrical Power Systems with Advanced Research Masters/MSc is even better!

The 3rd energy industry revolution is taking place where the key is the development of electrical power systems in the contexts of smart grids. Electrical power systems are playing a pivotal role in the development of a sustainable energy supply, enabling renewable energy generation. Globally there is a big shortage of skilled engineers for designing, operating, controlling and the economic analysis of future electricity networks – smart grids

The new 2-year MSc Electrical Power Systems with Advanced Research will give you the timely advanced skills and specialist experience required to significantly enhance your career in the electrical power industry. The programme builds on a very close involvement with the power industry, the education of power engineers and extensive research work and expertise as well as the successful experience on the 1-year MSc Electrical Power Systems at the University of Birmingham. The 2-year MSc Electrical Power Systems with Advanced Research will be able to fill in the gap of skills between the 1-year MSc and PhD research.

 

Patterns of study

The majority of students study our taught Masters programmes full-time. Our programmes are also suitable for practising engineers who wish to study part-time or take a single module to earn Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points. In most cases a module is completed in three-day sessions allowing you to complete one topic at a time. Following each session of lectures there is an opportunity for you to deepen your understanding through private study and assignments.
