Qualified electrical engineers are desperately needed by the power industry (manufacturers, project developers, independent consultants and network operators). There is also a severe shortage of power engineering expertise in other sectors, such as government bodies and finance organizations, where a detailed knowledge of energy supply and demand is increasingly important.

Read about MSc Energy and Power Engineering...

The development of sustainable and renewable methods for energy supply is a global priority, driven by the impact of carbon-based fossil fuel use on the environment. The main challenges in the shift away from fossil fuel based power generation lie in the development of sustainable energy technologies, ranging from the engineering of new materials to the integration of these technologies into power distribution networks.

 Research degrees

A 3-4 year full-time registration (5-7 years part-time) to enable your original contribution to knowledge with research, publications and thesis. We have opportunities for research in all of our research groups.

Our Civil and Environmental Research Group work on a broad range of issues underpinning civil engineering and combine modelling with practical experimentation.

Power, sustainability and improved communications are at the heart of our Electrical and Electronic Research Group.

The Mechanical and Process Engineering Research Group includes: fluid mechanics; fire and explosion hazards; chemical engineering; precision and surfaces; 3D printing; and thermal energy technology.

Our Systems and Information Research Group brings together expertise in many areas to undertaken research around health and security; the nature of the work means that many labs are cross-group.

Read more about Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)...

1-2 years full or part-time research degree that enables you to focus on a specific research topic.
