Career Prospects

Many opportunities exist in the power sector that targets a wider scope of marketable skills, experience, and training. Career paths in policy making, policy analysis, and policy research often do not require the technical background, but knowledge of the energy field and an understanding of finance, development, and the environment can increase competitiveness. This MS course was established in response to the needs of society and industry for engineers qualified to deal with the many issues surrounding the supply of electrical energy and the applications of electrical power. Studying electrical energy Engineering opens up a wide range of exciting and rewarding career options, allowing graduates to help solve some fundamental local and global challenges. The development and increasing use of renewable energy sources needs engineers with skills in advanced electrical technologies. This requires innovative engineering for research and development involving fuel cells, solar, wind, wave and tidal technologies. Graduate engineers will need to use their skills, knowledge and creativity to satisfy the need for reliable energy supplies with the minimum of impact on the environment. There is a recognizable shortage of specialist engineers to meet the needs of industry in this field.
