Electrical power and energy systems form the backbone of societies. Intelligent systems, spanning from production to end-user, ensure optimal utilisation of resources — minimal impact on environment, maximal benefits for society. This major offers a firm theoretical base as well as practical tools and skills needed by engineers working on the field of electrical power and energy engineering. The field includes transmission, distribution, smart grid, and sustainable generation and utilisation of electrical power, as well as power-conversion devices such as motors, generators, and power-electronic converters. In order to prepare students for understanding complex and multidisciplinary problems of the field, the major is designed to be flexible and a systems perspective is emphasised. Courses include theoretical considerations, experimental work, industrial applications, and first-hand experience in real research environments. This major prepares students for current and future challenges faced by electrical energy and network companies, power manufacturing industry, and society. Students are well-prepared to pursue doctoral studies. Upon completion of the Major, the student will be able to:

  • Identify fundamental aspects and considerations for electrical energy systems
  • Develop applications for energy efficiency, integration of renewables, and distributed generation
  • Analyze and evaluate existing and future challenges in the field of electrical power and energy engineering
  • Design and analyze power systems or energy conversion devices
  • Understand in depth one of the focus areas (electromechanics, power electronic systems, power systems, or sustainable electrical energy)
