About this program

Masters in Electrical Power Engineering

The aim of the two-year master’s course in Electrical Power Engineering is to educate engineers with a broad base of knowledge both of theory and of practical applications from the whole field of electrical power engineering, with the possibility of continuing to develop the acquired knowledge in doctoral studies. The graduates of the course are able to deal with both operational technical and research issues in the sphere of the production, transmission, distribution, and use of electrical energy, including an orientation focus on electrical machines and apparatus. The link to electrical power engineering companies and industrial partners is used both in the teaching, in the form of lectures given by experts from practice, and in the implementation of theses.
