Smart grids can help to integrate an increasing amount of renewable energy sources (RES) into the grid. RES present a challenge to traditional electricity grids because they are often both intermittent and difficult to predict. Smart grids help network companies to remotely anticipate and respond to problems so repair crews from your local distributor can fix power outages faster.
Energy companies and businesses are already exploring how to adopt RES into the grid but they lack Smart Grids management skills and knowledge among employees. This new MSc programme, therefore, offers a unique advantage to its graduates in an increasingly competitive job market with highly-sought expertise, giving you the skills you need to launch a career in this fast-growing sector.
The teaching on the course is research-led, and you will have the opportunity to learn from real-world, cutting-edge live projects. You’ll also have the opportunity to undertake placements/internships with leading companies in the energy and smart grids sector, both in the UK and internationally.
