EPE Master course – a degree with International Focus

 

Motivation:

  • Need of increased and efficient energy supply and power applications to meet the increasing energy demands of rapidly growing world population.
  • Cost effective energy (T&D) solutions to compete in deregulated markets internationally.
  • Enhanced and rational use of regenerative energies to tackle climatic change issues.
  • Development of de-centralized power systems for effective industrial realization of fuel cell technology.
  • Faster, better and cleaner technology in electrical traction vehicles and automobiles in traffic systems.
  • Innovation-driven technological and material development to develop novel products or to change existing systems (e.g. application of superconductors, permanent-magnet-drives or silicon carbide power semiconductors).

Aims of the programs – Education in Tune with the Times:

  • Imparting well-founded knowledge in electrical power engineering.
  • Encouraging application of conceptual knowledge to come up with socially and economically reliable solutions.
  • Encouraging methodology for finding best technical solutions.
  • Promoting independent and innovative working methods in scientific and technical disciplines.
  • Training of an abstract thinking for modelling and simulation.
  • Promoting sense of teamwork.

Professional Perspectives:

  • Research and Development: Developing new concepts in the fields of sustainable power conversion, transmission, distribution and storage.
  • Developing advanced energy application and integrating Energy and Information Technology.
  • Planning and operation of electrical power systems.
  • Enhanced and rational use of renewable energies.
  • Developing industrial applications of electric motive-power technologies.
  • Developing new types of electric vehicles and electric-powered transportation systems (electric trains and automobiles).
  • Integration of modern power electronics into power systems ( e.g. non-rotating converters, FACTS etc).
