The Master’s programme in Electric Power Engineering covers courses in Electric Power Engineering including systems and components where electricity is principally used to transfer energy. The programme is concerned with understanding, modelling and analysing a wide range of topics related to design, operation, and control of individual power system components as well as power system in its entirety. After successful completion of the programme, participants shall be able to pursue a professional career in industry as well as an academic research career.

Knowledge and understanding

For the Master’s degree, the student shall

• demonstrate knowledge and understanding in the field of Electric Power Engineering, including both broad knowledge of this field and a considerable degree of specialised knowledge in one of the above mentioned subject areas as well as insight into current research and development issues, and

• demonstrate specialised methodological knowledge in the field of Electric Power Engineering

Skills and abilities

For the Master’s degree, the student shall

• demonstrate the ability to critically and systematically integrate knowledge and analyse, assess and deal with complex phenomena, issues and situations even with limited information

• demonstrate the ability to identify and formulate issues critically, autonomously and creatively as well as to plan and, using appropriate methods, undertake advanced tasks within predetermined time frames and thereby contribute to the creation of knowledge as well as the ability to evaluate this work

• demonstrate the ability to orally and in writing clearly report and discuss his or her conclusions and the knowledge and arguments on which they are based in dialogue with different audiences, and

• demonstrate the skills required for participation in research and development work or autonomous employment in some other qualified capacity.

Ability to make judgments and adopt a standpoint

For the Master’s degree, the student shall

• demonstrate the ability to make assessments in the field of Electric Power Engineering, informed by relevant disciplinary, social and ethical issues and also to demonstrate awareness of ethical aspects of research and development work

• demonstrate insight into the possibilities and limitations of research, its role in society and the responsibility of the individual for how it is used, and

• demonstrate the ability to identify the personal need for further knowledge and take responsibility for his or her ongoing learning.
