The global trend to produce electricity using cleaner, sustainable
technologies will lead to a strong demand for engineers with expertise
in these new technologies, both in UK and overseas markets. There is a
significant need for engineers with expertise in new vehicle
technologies, including hydrogen and electric vehicle propulsion
systems. The use of low-power lighting in domestic and commercial
environments is also becoming extremely important. The University’s
Faculty of Advanced Technology has established a reputation for
leading-edge research and consultancy in this area, which directly
informs the teaching on this course.
MSc Sustainable Power Technology degree is ideal for students with a
strong background in the areas of electrical, electronic and
mechatronic engineering. It as an ideal opportunity to gain expertise
in specialist areas such as low-power lighting design and hybrid
vehicle power train design. These new and exciting areas mean you will
study at the leading edge of this technology. The course includes a
significant practical element, so you can reinforce the theory
delivered in formal lectures through a range of practical assignments.
