What is... Sustainable Electrical Energy Systems?
This programme has been planned in response to a need in Industry for a masters degree programme that addresses the technology of sustainable electrical energy systems and the issues surrounding their integration into electrical power systems. The main themes covered are:electrical power systems analysis, renewable electrical energy technology, power electronics, distributed generation, energy markets and global issues surrounding the supply and demand of energy. The programme is aimed at graduate engineers who would like to continue their studies and at engineers who are currently working in the electrical/electronic and related industries who would like to move into an engineering role in the electrical energy systems area.
The programme is accredited by Engineers Ireland as meeting the educational standard required for Chartered Engineer membership - refer to Engineers Ireland web site for further details.
The programme consists of 12 taught modules and a project. Modules are delivered through a mixture of lecture, assignments and laboratory work, e-learning and problem based learning by academics and industrial experts.
