Worcester Polytechnic Institute


This specialized program will prepare electrical engineers for professional practice in the electric utility industry or other applications of electric power. It is also a great re-training tool for experienced engineers or those who may not have a formal background in power systems.

The Master of Engineering in Power Systems Engineering consists of seven technical power courses, and three elective courses. The program can be tailored to meet specific corporate needs. Companies will work directly with a Power Systems Engineering program manager to design a program that meets the organization’s requirements.

This program also provides a technical track of analytical and practical subjects that are necessary for engineering success in today’s power industry. Topics such as power systems analysis in the steady state and under transient conditions, system stability, protection and control, transmission and distribution system design and apparatus, and power system operations and planning are offered. Topics in renewable energy introduce the latest technologies in wind, solar, geothermal and nuclear power generation along with the system stability challenges of integrating distributed generation into the grid.
