About

Electric Power Engineering aims to educate students in advanced and state-of-the-art developments in electric power engineering; the programme addresses theoretical aspects as well as provides a good practical and experimental basis. It has a long tradition at the Chalmers University of Technology of around one hundred years.

Overview

The Electric Power Engineering programme areas include high voltage engineering, electric machines and drives, power electronics and power systems. The department’s research profile of environment and renewable energy sources is also covered.

Why apply

Electric Power Engineering aims to provide master’s programme students with:

  • good theoretical knowledge by means of lectures and tutorials,
  • good practical experience by means of computer exercises (simulation) and laboratory exercises (experimentation),
  • contact with Swedish industry through guest lectures, study visits and opportunities to carry out master’s thesis work in the industry.

Research connections

The programme offered by Chalmers University of Technology is closely connected to the graduate research school in the area of energy and the environment, and particularly to specialisations within electric power engineering. It is also connected to the graduate research school in the area of high voltage engineering, which is a joint initiative between Chalmers University of Technology, Uppsala University, the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm and High Voltage Valley in Ludvika.Many of the programme’s courses and master’s thesis project areas provide a strong link to research activities within the Division of Electric Power Engineering and the High Voltage Engineering Division, the latter belonging to the Department of Materials and Manufacturing Technology.

Students who have completed the programme are thus expected to form a strong pool for recruitment to the above-mentioned PhD programmes.Electric Power Engineering at Chalmers has a well established link to the power industries in Sweden. The industries have supported research projects financially as well as through other forms of cooperation. In the past few years, cooperation with the car, telecom and wind power industries has increased through a number of master’s theses and research projects.
