Course summary

On Electrical Power Engineering MSc you will gain the knowledge and skills for a career in electrical power engineering. At Warwick's Engineering Department you will be taught by a team of world-class research academics, with industrial experience. Course overview Qualified electrical engineers are desperately needed by the power industry. There is also a severe shortage of power engineering expertise in other sectors, such as government bodies and finance organisations, where a detailed knowledge of energy supply and demand is increasingly important. This shortage comes as societies develop and adapt to pressing environmental and economic constraints, dwindling reserves of fossil fuels, and the emergence of new energy technologies. This course will give you the knowledge and skills required for a career in electrical power engineering and is an opportunity to update your knowledge with the latest developments in renewable energy and smart grids.
