Overview

Smart grids are designed to enhance the effectiveness, stability and reliability of the systems and to integrate distributed energy resources into system management. They are essential for increasing the share of renewable energy sources without compromising competitiveness and system security.

The Electrical Engineering - Smart Grids program offered by Tampere University includes everything from component level (design and control of power electronic converters) to networks (distribution and transmission grids) and systems (electricity market and ICT/automation).

Career opportunities

Our graduates have a broad range of career opportunities in all the domains of smart grids. Companies that manufacture power electronic, power engineering and specialised smart grid components are looking for employees to take up design, research and development, project management and marketing roles. Electricity production, transmission and distribution companies, energy retailers and other power companies are also looking for employees for similar positions. 

In addition to these traditional employers, there is a growing number of services (building, maintenance, information exchange, energy saving, market analysis, electricity trading, etc.), software vendors and start-up companies specialising in the energy business and smart grids. Many of our graduates also go on to pursue a doctoral degree (PhD) in Finland or abroad.  

Programme Structure

The studies in Smart Grids combine technical knowledge and skills related to power electronics and electric power engineering with broader viewpoints of control, electricity markets and ICT/automation. 

The study module and courses explore existing practices and possible future ideas to design, implement and maintain smart grids, which are a critical infrastructure of future electricity systems. The study module includes two options, electric power engineering and power electronics, that allos students to deepen their practical knowledge and skills in the field.
