What will I learn

Electric Power Engineering - Master's Programme, 2 years - Trondheim

What will you learn?

Electric Power Engineering is important to industrialised as well as developing countries.
​​​​​​​This Master Programme 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.

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 utilised. This has resulted in Norway gaining a leading position within certain fields of electric power engineering, such as utilisation 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. Together with SINTEF Energy Research it is also a major research unit. 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.
