Electrical Power Engineering, MEngTech

Programme Overview

The Master of Engineering Technology in Electrical Power Engineering is a 60 ECTS* credit postgraduate programme, designed to equip graduates and professionals for a career in the electricity sector. The programme offers deep knowledge on modern electrical engineering technologies, coupled with a strong focus in industrial design on power and energy applications. Graduates and professionals will acquire theoretically-grounded as well as practice-oriented skills that are relevant to the industry.

This programme is tailored for working professionals. Classes are conducted on weekday evenings.

*ECTS: European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System, a credit system designed to make it easier for students to move between different countries.

Programme Highlights

The programme specialises in the domain of Electrical Power Engineering with emphasis on:

  • Analysis of power systems operation and dynamics using transient modelling and simulations;
  • Modern digital control and automation of power transmission and distribution system for high stability and reliability;
  • Ethical and professional practices in power engineering to meet high standards and expectations;
  • Multi-disciplinary understanding of energy markets and economics;
  • Operation and management in the competitive power generation business;
  • Condition monitoring, health prognosis and asset maintenance and replacement in power grids;
  • Analysis and design of electrical machines for power generation and electrical traction applications;
  • Cyber security and cyber-resilient smart power grids;
  • Advanced technologies for intelligence in the power grids;
  • Assessment and enhancement of power quality and reliability;
  • Analysis, protection and prevention of fault conditions in high density power systems;
  • Integration, interconnection and interoperability of distributed energy resources in modern power grids;
  • Advanced electrification in built environment and in land, sea and air transportation;
  • Wide-band gap and 3D power electronics for robust utility applications;

Accreditation

The MEngTech (EPE) programme will be seeking professional accreditation from the Engineering Accreditation Board. The first provisional accreditation exercise of the MEngTech (EPE) with BEng (EPE) is expected in early 2019.
