Do you want to explore the technology behind sustainable energy solutions, as well as how to regulate energy supply that is based on hydro power? Become an expert in hydro power and power supply with this Electrical Power Engineering programme from University of South-Eastern Norway. 


Our Electrical Power Engineering master program at University of South-Eastern Norway is anchored in hydro power, which is the most effective form of renewable energy. Hydro power is also easy to regulate, which means that the social value of hydro power is higher than that of many other power sources.

Considerable challenges have arisen in the further development of the power grid in Norway and elsewhere through the introduction of unregulated energy production, such as small-scale production of hydro, wind and solar power.

Where can I work?

  • With a master’s degree in Electrical Power Engineering, you can work in power production, power transmission and distribution, larger industrial enterprises, supply industry for electric equipment and in consulting engineering.
