Since the early 90s, postgraduate education in the power and energy sector experienced a slowdown, resulting in a shortage of skilled graduates in the field on the global front. With significantly increasing demand for new and environmentally-clean energy resources, and the soaring prices of oil, this programme aims to cater for opportunities arising from research and development in this field.

Current issues in the area of power and energy systems such as power system efficiency, renewable energy, and distributed grid-connected systems will also be introduced and addressed in this programme to provide learners with a competitive edge and greater employability opportunities.

Programme Details

Students are required to complete approximately 40 credits comprising seven compulsory core courses, one elective course, and a project.  The project is research-based and is carried out over two semesters. The project work must have research potential in an area of study interest relevant to the field of energy and power. It may also be carried out at the university or as part of an industry project. The project will be assessed by a panel of examiners at the end of the programme.
