Master Electrical Engineering for Modern Sustainable Transport Systems - Máster en Ingeniería Eléctrica para Sistemas Modernos de Transporte Sostenible
The 1-year Electrical Power Systems Masters/MSc is good, the 2-year Electrical Power Systems with Advanced Research Masters/MSc is even better!
The 3rd energy industry revolution is taking place where the key is the development of electrical power systems in the contexts of smart grids. Electrical power systems are playing a pivotal role in the development of a sustainable energy supply, enabling renewable energy generation. Globally there is a big shortage of skilled engineers for designing, operating, controlling and the economic analysis of future electricity networks – smart grids
The new 2-year MSc Electrical Power Systems with Advanced Research will give you the timely advanced skills and specialist experience required to significantly enhance your career in the electrical power industry. The programme builds on a very close involvement with the power industry, the education of power engineers and extensive research work and expertise as well as the successful experience on the 1-year MSc Electrical Power Systems at the University of Birmingham. The 2-year MSc Electrical Power Systems with Advanced Research will be able to fill in the gap of skills between the 1-year MSc and PhD research.
Some modules will be taught by leading industry experts, which will give you the exciting opportunity to understand the real challenges that power industry is facing, hence propose innovative solutions. In addition, students working on relevant MSc projects may have the opportunity to work with leading industry experts directly.
At least an upper second-class Honours degree in Electrical Engineering, Electronic Engineering or Physics from a university of high international standing
