IEPC Undergraduate Modules 

The Department teaches a number of undergraduate level study-units throughout the four years of the B.Eng.(Hons) degree offered by the Faculty of Engineering. Although the topics thought by the department are organized in 4 main areas (Power Electronic Converters; Electrical Drives & Machines; Electrical Power Systems; Electrical Services), most applications require some degree interdisciplinary as can be seen from the figure below.

The modules thought by the department of IEPC deliver the knowledge and skills required for the students to work in industrial/academic environments in the related fields of electrical engineering. For further information contact us via email or send us a message on our Facebook page.

First Year Study-Units

The first year of the B.Eng.(Hons) degree in electrical and electronic engineering consists of a number of compulsory units which serve to ensure that students get a firm grasp of the fundamental concepts of electrical engineering. The study units delivered by the department of IEPC in your first year are core modules of the B. Eng. (Hons) degree in electrical and electronic engineering. These study-units teach the students the necessary tools to analyze electrical circuits and consist of:

CodeModule Name
EPC1101Electrical Circuit Theory 1
EPC1201Electrical Circuit Theory 2
EPC1202Introduction to Electrical Energy Systems


Second Year Study-Units

During the second year of the degree you will also be attending a number of compulsory units. The study units delivered by the department of IEPC in your second year are core modules of the degree which serve to continue strengthening the fundamental concepts in electrical engineering. These modules introduce concepts related to the areas of power electronic converters, electrical drives and machines; and electrical power systems. These study-units are:

CodeModule Name
EPC2101Electrical Machines
EPC2102Electrical Power 1
EPC2201Power Electronics 1

 

Third Year Study-Units

During the third year of the degree you will have the option to select a number of elective units. The study units offered by the department of IEPC in your third year build on the core modules of the first two years. Modules offered by the department during this year are related to the areas of power electronic converters, electrical drives and machines; electrical power systems; and electrical services. These consist of:

CodeModule Name
EPC3102Electrical Power 2
EPC3103Power Electronics 2
EPC3104Electromechanical Drives
EPC3201Power Quality
EPC3202Industrial Systems  
ENR3101Properties and Applications of Electrical and Electronic Materials

In addition, topics covered in these modules can be linked to the ENR3008 (Team Project) which is carried out during this year of the degree. The team project is a perfect opportunity to achieve practical experience in the general area you are most interested in. General areas related to the department of IEPC which can be studied in this practical module are listed in the research page.

 

Fourth Year Study-Units

During the final year of the degree you will have the option to select a number of elective units. The study units offered by the department of IEPC build on the modules of the third year to provide the necessary formation for the electrical engineer who is seeking to work in any of these fields. Modules offered by the department during this year are related to the areas of power electronic converters, electrical drives and machines; electrical power systems; and electrical services. These consist of:

CodeModule Name
EPC4101Electrical Power 3
EPC4102Electrical Building Technology
EPC4103Electrical Industrial Technology
EPC4104Power Electronic Converters and Distributed Generation
EPC4105Advanced Electrical Drives


Undergraduate Dissertation

During your fourth year you shall also be undertaking your dissertation, in addition to the taught modules. The final year project is an important learning activity during which you link the knowledge gained during the course to professional applications. In addition you shall also be learning skills relevant to independent investigation (problem solving) and report writing which you shall be finding very useful in your place of work once you complete your degree. 

The academic members of the department of IEPC are experts in their respective field and it is advisable to choose a supervisor who works in the general area you plan to research. The academic staff of IEPC is always available to help students progress through this challenging task. The topics which can be pursued for an undergraduate thesis with IEPC are vast and general areas are listed in the research page. Feel free to contact any academic member of the department to discuss any queries regarding thesis titles/topics.
