Are you interested in working in the electrical power engineering and renewable energy sectors? This course will give you a thorough understanding of power electronics, electric drive systems, smart grids, wind power, photovoltaic and other distributed generation systems.
The course, which enjoys very high student satisfaction rates, has been carefully designed to meet the needs of industry.
Electrical power engineers need to be able to work in multidisciplinary teams and to show organisational and commercial skills alongside technical knowledge. The course therefore has a strong focus on project management, self-development and employability.
You’ll benefit from the University’s excellent facilities that include specialist electrical and electronics laboratory resources. Northumbria has a well-established reputation for producing graduates who can apply their knowledge to generate creative solutions for sustainable electrical power systems.
In the second year, for one semester, you’ll undertake an internship, study in another country or join a research group. This valuable experience will enhance your employability and further develop your theoretical and practical skills.
This option offers the opportunity to spend three months working full-time to gain all-important work experience and employability skills. You may be able to extend this over more than one semester in cases where it is adjacent to a vacation period. We will endeavour to help those who prefer this option to source opportunities and to perfect their CV but ultimately the onus is on the student to secure the internship position through a competitive application process.
