Electrical Power Engineering at Glasgow Caledonian University - UCAS

Course summary

This programme is for Level 1 entry only. Applicants for Level 2 and Level 3 entry should apply for BEng (Hons) Electrical Power Engineering Power system engineers are in high demand as the successful production, transmission and distribution of electrical power becomes increasingly important. Climate change and economic drivers mean there is an ever growing worldwide demand for power. The application of Electrical Power and the management and control of its production, transmission and distribution infrastructure, is at the heart of modern society - and correspondingly an increased demand for power system engineers. This programme has been designed in collaboration with industry and has a strong emphasis on practical experience. It provides a broad education in electrical, mechanical, renewables and electronic engineering, alongside specialist modules in power engineering and power electronics. The switch to renewable energy from wind, wave and tidal sources will require substantial transmission and distribution infrastructure development. Our students get a strong grounding in sustainable energy production so will be ideally placed to capitalise on this significant growth. Students have access to well-equipped computer aided engineering labs as well as electrical and electronic laboratories with leading technologies. This programme offers two industrial based placements, during trimester B of Year 3 and/or on completion of Year 3 - one for 48 weeks. These are not compulsory or guaranteed placements.
