About Electrical Power and Energy Technology at Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU)

The MRes Electrical Power and Energy Technology programme provides advanced and systematic education and training in the areas of electronic science and technology. It has been designed to respond to the vigorous development of electric power and energy technology in China and worldwide.

The programme contains taught courses covering solar converters, wind power systems, energy storage technology, and smart grids. It places strong emphasis on hands-on experience and practical skills development. A 12-month extensive research project is required which leads to submission of a dissertation after students have finished the taught modules.

You will develop the understanding of state-of-the-art electrical power and energy technology; be able to research and critically evaluate trends in current technologies of energy management, sustainability, renewable energy and nuclear energy; skills in planning, project management and communicating complex ideas; and experience in conducting extended research and/or developing project work.

You will benefit from:

  • excellent research platform equipped with advanced experimental equipment, including network analyser, power analyser and electrical machine testing system etc.
  • cutting-edge research areas that aim for the intelligent and efficient utilisation of emerging electrical power and energy technologies
  • close cooperation with world famous universities and research centres to solve major challenges.
  • additional learning activities provided to improve students' research and design skills, such as module CEN901 Research Methods (Information Management and Expression).

Graduates of this programme, as with all XJTLU masters degrees, earn a University of Liverpool degree that is recognised by the Chinese Ministry of Education.
