Graduate Taught (level 9 nfq, credits 20)

UCD offers a range of high-quality modules as part of its degree programmes. Traditionally, these modules have only been available to full-time students, although the content is of great interest to graduates working in industry.

The Climate Action Plan launched in 2019 by the Irish Government defines a new growth strategy and roadmap to decarbonise the energy sector and renovate buildings and transportation to help cut energy bills and usage. The recent European Green Deal goes in the same direction and will have several implications for Ireland, in particular for the electrical power system.

There is, in particular, a need for training for electrical engineers who are currently in employment, or are expected to be recruited into the sector, in the field of electrical energy system security, control, stability analysis, resilience, renewable energy, converter-interfaced generation and low-inertia systems.

Students will choose from four of six modules.Choose four of six modules. Modules offered include EEEN40110 Renewable Energy Systems, EEEN40550 Power System Dynamics and Control, EEEN40580 Optimisation Techniques for Engineers, and EEEN50100 Stability Analysis of Nonlinear Systems.
