The Master of Science in Electrical and Electronic Engineering is a 60-ECTS-credit postgraduate programme, designed to equip graduates and working professionals for a career in the power and energy sector.

The programme offers deep knowledge of modern electrical engineering technologies, coupled with a strong focus in industrial design in power and energy applications. Graduates and working professionals will acquire theoretically-grounded as well as practice-oriented skills that are relevant to the industry. 

This programme is provisionally accredited under the Washington Accord by the Engineering Accreditation Board. The accreditation status applies to graduates who have completed both the MSc Electrical and Electronic Engineering and the BEng (Hons) Electrical Power Engineering. Students in this programme who also possess a BEng in Electrical Power Engineering are eligible to sit for the Professional Engineers Board (PEB)-SIT Fundamentals of Engineering Examination even before graduation.

Note: The ECTS, known as the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System, is a credit system designed to make it easier for students to move between different countries
