MSc Electrical Power Systems Engineering (Distance Learning)

MSc Electrical Power Systems Engineering (Distance Learning) / Overview

Year of entry: 2018

Degree awarded
Master of Science
From 24 months to 60 months part time
Entry requirements

You should hold first-class / upper second-class honours degree, or international equivalent, in electronic/electrical engineering, physics or computer science or its equivalent from a reputable institution. If you do not meet this level then relevant industrial experience can be taken into account

If you do not meet the standard academic requirements but have at least an upper second-class foundation degree (or equivalent) in a technical discipline (e.g. engineering, mathematics, physics, or computer science) along with appropriate industrial experience , may be accepted on to the first two units from the MSc as a standalone training course. When assessing you for this we will take into account industrial experience, as well as the relevance and grades of your taught units. When applying please make sure you detail your industrial experience with the analysis/simulation/design of electrical power systems. If you do sufficiently well in the units we may be able to transfer you onto the full MSc.
