This  Power Engineering (Electrical) (Hons) from London South Bank University  has a strong component of power system network architecture which is important to understand how a large power network can be operated securely and reliably while complying with relevant regulations.

We aim to produce engineers who meet the educational needs for full Incorporated Engineer status. Our course satisfies the requirements of the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer.


Students who complete the course successfully can find jobs with DNO’s (Distribution Network Operators such as UK Power Networks etc), National Grid, power producing industries such as gas and steam power plants, power utility companies etc.

This course was developed to meet the core knowledge required for the Integrated Power Engineer Apprentice standard L7 and differs very much from a standard undergraduate degree. Any student doing this course, outside the apprentice standard, will have the advantage of specific and specialist skills, putting them in a good position to secure relevant employment.
