    Course Summary

    Liverpool University’s MSc in Energy and Power Systems is designed to provide the power systems engineers that many industries are demanding in greater and greater numbers. You’ll learn in detail about the way power is generated, transformed and transmitted, as well as gaining an understanding of the monitoring, optimisation and control systems upon which the industry depends.

    This degree requires a substantial engineering background, and builds on your undergraduate work and/or work experience to give you a very marketable and sought-after specialty in a rapidly growing field.

    The year in Industry offered as part of this program will allow you to spend your third year doing specialised power systems engineering work with one of Liverpool University’s industrial or commercial partners. This is an excellent opportunity to gain important career skills, enhance your resume and earn a substantial wage.

    Note that this course is also available as a one year MSc (Eng) program without the year in industry, and if for any reason an industrial placement cannot be arranged, you will be transferred to this degree program.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    This program is delivered over two years.

    Year 1:

    In your first year you’ll gain the theoretical and practical mathematics skills you will need to design, build and maintain the energy systems and power networks the world will need as the economic and technological potential of the 21st century is realised.

    Year 2:

    Year 2 will be spent in an industrial work placement in the UK or abroad, followed by a program assessment. This will be arranged with the assistance of Liverpool’s Careers and Employability Services department, and the vast majority of students do achieve relevant placements. Many graduates return to work with their placement employer, but this is by no mean required.

    Learning & Teaching

    Liverpool University carries out world-leading research in this field, and you’ll be taught by some of the minds who are redefining Energy and Power Systems and creating the technologies upon which tomorrow’s industries will rely. Indeed, you will have several opportunities to contribute to this cutting edge research yourself.

    Career Possiblities

    The year spent in industry will give you a huge advantage over less experienced graduates in applying for roles both at your placement employer or elsewhere. Whilst many industries need power systems specialists, some of the most common employers for graduates of this program include China’s State Grid, Scottish Power and the UK’s National Grid.

    Entry Credit

    Entry Requirements for UK and EU-nationals

    Potential students must have achieved a 2:1 undergraduate degree in Engineering, Mathematics or a Physical Science, or a similar accreditation.

    Entry Requirements for overseas (non-EU) students

    Overseas students must have achieved an equivalent level of academic accreditation to EU and UK students. A list of the overseas accreditations accepted can be found here.

    In addition you may have to prove your fluency with the English language. This can be accomplished with an IELTS score of 6.5 overall and no less than 5.5 in any one section, or similar scores in a range of other tests.
