Power Systems

ObjectivesIII

STUDY PROGRAM: 3 – Power Systems

Duration: 1 year

ECTS points: 60 ECTS

Degree: Master of Sciences in Power Systems

The aim of the study program is to educate professionals following the needs of the modern economy and the quality criteria for teaching at a university level. It contains fundamental power system courses complemented with new research and knowledge, as well as a series of new courses that have been developed in accordance with the state of the art in the field of power systems. The study program is designed in a way that enables the acquisition of knowledge and competencies necessary for the MSc in this field, which will be the basis for further education following the latest technological development.

The proposed study program includes the most important aspects of power systems, whereby students will acquire knowledge in the field of transmission and distribution systems, their exploitation, management and planning, integration of distributed energy sources in power system, electricity markets, power quality and smart grids.

The study program aims to educate individuals who after the graduation will become a part of the power industry, primarily within the companies for transmission, distribution, trade and supply of electricity. At the same time, there is a possibility for their involvement in the public administration whose functions are connected with the power systems operation and planning, as well as in the consulting, design and manufacturing companies. The current state in power companies indicates a constant need for quality personnel capable of engaging in modern trends and responding to the requirements of different segments of the economy. The restructuring and changes in the power sector that have taken place in the past period have shown that the quality of the personnel is the most important segment for success in the process.
