COURSEWORK AND ASSESSMENT
The assessment methods reflect the wide range of teaching and learning practices and diversity of subject matter and test the learning outcomes of each module in the most appropriate way. The students are expected to evaluate theoretical or practical frameworks for the analysis and critical evaluation of a variety of issues, informed by recent research. Where appropriate, they are also expected to propose new solutions to problems.
The programme will enhance students' knowledge and skills in current practices and new developments in electrical power engineering. This will give the graduate a better opportunity for a career in industry or provide a good background to undertake further research studies.
