-The Faculty of Engineering is widely recognised as world-class - this fact is borne out by the high standard of our research and the extensive funding it attracts - overall research awards recently topped £80m.
-The School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Nottingham has a strong reputation in both teaching and research. It achieved an excellent rating for its teaching quality rating (22/24) in 2000, and a grade of 4 in the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise.
-Particular features of the programme include: one-to-one tuition with expert members of staff; teaching informed by active leading-edge researchers in the field; innovative and engaging teaching methods; access to many online resources; and flexibility in course content
During the autumn and spring semesters, you will complete 120-credits’ worth of taught modules. This will include the following core modules:
-Power Electronics 2 with project
-Power Networks with project
-Induction Motor Drives with Laboratory
-Power Quality and EMC with Laboratory
In addition, you will be able to choose 30-credits’ worth of modules from the following list:
-Conservation and Recycling of Materials
-Renewable Energy Technology 1
-Combined Heat and Power
-Renewable Energy Technology 2
Please note that all module details are subject to change.
After completing the taught components of the course, you will undertake a major piece of advanced independent research under the supervision of a specialist in your chosen area.
We will provide you with advice and guidance while you select and refine your area of study, and offer close supervision and support as you complete your research and your MSc.
The MSc in Electrical Technology for Sustainable and Renewable Energy Systems is taught on a full-time basis over 1 year.
This course is operated on a modular basis and consists of two semesters during which you will follow a series of taught modules (worth 120 credits), followed by a 60-credit research project undertaken during the summer period.
You will be taught using the latest advances in teaching methods and electronic resources, as well as small-group and individual tuition.
Tutors provide feedback on assignments. Our objective is to help you develop the confidence to work as a professional academic, at ease with the conventions of the discipline, and ready to tackle any area of research in Electronic Technology for Sustainable and Renewable Energy Systems.
In the early stages of your project dissertation, your supervisor will read through and comment on your draft work. The project dissertation itself comprises a significant piece of your own research.
We also offer a Postgraduate Diploma in Electrical Technology for Sustainable and Renewable Energy.
