Overview

The environmental challenges, renewable energy generation, smart grid, high voltage power engineering and research and management skills are also addressed in this one-year programme. In addition, site visit and practical sessions are included. The programme has been carefully developed for graduates with electrical/electronic or related backgrounds to meet the increasing demand from the energy and power industry.

Graduates will be capable of undertaking research and development work in energy and power systems, and also developing and managing R&D programmes.
