MSc Electrical Power Systems Engineering (Distance Learning) / Overview
Year of entry: 2019
- Degree awarded
- Master of Science
- From 30 months to 60 months part time
- Entry requirements
You must hold a first-class / upper second-class honours degree, or international equivalent, in a relevant technical discipline (e.g. electronic/electrical engineering, mechatronics) or its equivalent from a reputable institution. The degree must have been completed within the last 5 years. Students must also be able to complete an appropriate worked-based dissertation.
Students who meet most but not all of the above criteria may be considered for an alternative entry route into the MSc, where the first two units are taken as training courses. When assessing you for this we will take into account relevant industrial experience, as well as the relevance and grades of your taught units. If these are passed then transfer to the MSc will be considered by the exam board (exam boards sit every 6 months, hence students will have to take a break from studies, normally for 3 months, while waiting for the exam board¿s decision).Please contact us if you have any questions about this process via: firstname.lastname@example.org
