This Electrical Power Systems with Advanced Research programme from University of Birmingham meets the industrial demand for the training and education of both existing and future engineers in the advanced concepts of electrical power systems and renewable energy as well as advanced research skills.
It aims to produce graduates of the highest calibre with the right advanced skills and knowledge who will be capable of leading in teams involved in the operation, control, design, and economic analysis of the electrical power systems and networks of the future – smart grids as well as developing and managing R&D programmes.
Some modules will be taught by leading industry experts, which will give you the exciting opportunity to understand the real challenges that power industry is facing, hence propose innovative solutions. In addition, students working on relevant MSc projects may have the opportunity to work with leading industry experts directly.
The 2-Year MSc Electrical Power Systems with Advanced Research will run in parallel with the existing 1-Year MSc Electrical Power Systems. The taught credits in the 1st year of the 2 Year MSc are identical to that of the 1-Year MSc while the 2nd Year is mainly focused on a research project. The 2-year programme will also be able to fill in the gap of skills between the 1-year MSc and PhD research.
- Control concepts and methods
- Advanced energy conversion systems and power electronic applications
- Advanced power electronic technologies for electrical power networks – HVDC and FACTS
- Electrical power system engineering – using state-of-the-art computational tools and methods, and design of sustainable electrical power systems and networks
- Economic analysis of electrical power systems and electricity markets.
“The transition from undergrad to postgrad can be a big step up in terms of workload and what is expected of you, but there is so much support available to you as a postgrad student, from academic writing support (if you’ve been out of education for a few years or just want a bit of extra help) to mental health and wellbeing services. The careers support is fantastic – the uni puts on employer fairs throughout the year and you have access to one on one support from the Careers Network team, who can help you develop your skills ready for your next step!”
