O que eu aprenderei?

Electric Power Engineering is important to industrialized as well as developing countries. This Master Programme at Norwegian University of Science & Technology (NTNU) aims to

Provide candidates with knowledge and skills for planning, design and operation of Electric Power Systems.
Develop new methods and new high tech components for effective, reliable and sustainable systems and industrial products.

The Department has a faculty of 12 professors, who are specialists in all fields of electric power engineering. We have extensive computer and laboratory resources . In addition there is a close collaboration with the research institute SINTEF Energy Research, located at the university campus. The two partners collaborate within the framework of Gemini Centre, which allows the master students to take part in research activities and to have access to advanced laboratories and experienced researchers. The Department also collaborates with other Norwegian industry and international partners and holds a leading position in the power engineering sector among European universities.

Norway has a unique position in terms of energy resources. Hydro power is the main source of electric energy. There is also a potential for wind and wave power at a large scale along the coast. Some of this potential is now being utilized. This has resulted in Norway gaining a leading position within certain fields of electric power engineering, such as utilization of hydro power and other renewables, deregulated power markets, and offshore and maritime electrical installations. The Department of Electric Power Engineering at NTNU is Norway's main supplier of education within this field. It is therefore natural for the Department to launch an international master's programme in electric power engineering with strong emphasis on sustainability within the energy field.

The Master's programme will have a mixture of Norwegian and non-Norwegian students, and the total number of students will be approximately 25. The target number of non-Norwegian students is 10. Students in the international programme will also meet in classes with Norwegian students following the five year Master Programme in Energy and Environmental Engineering with specialization towards Electric Power Engineering. Total number of these students are about 35.

The programme consists of two years of full-time studies, giving a total of 120 ECTS credits. There will not be charged any tuition fee. The teaching language is English.

Job prospects

Engineers with a specialization in electric power engineering is in demand all over the world. In Norway there is a steady demand in sectors such as utility companies, industry, consultant and offshore oil and gas exploration. Citizens of EU countries can apply for jobs in Norway. Non-EU citizens will have to obtain a work permit first. Here are some opportunities:

A Master of Science in Electric Power Engineering has:

Advanced engineering knowledge in electric power engineering. The main focus is the advanced application of the basic aspects of high voltage technology, electrical machines, electrical motor drives and other related subjects. The subject areas are mastered at different levels of abstraction, from laboratory activities to theory, including a reflection of the subjects' content and relationships with other subject areas.
Deep understanding of one or more of the following topics:

Production of electrical energy from fossil and renewable energy sources.
Transmission of electrical energy
Use of electrical energy.

The following knowledge is expected to be covered in the underlying Bachelor degree:

Broad knowledge of basic subjects such as Mathematics, Physics and Information Technology (IT). This provides the basis for methodology, application, professional renewal and restructuring within electric power engineering.
