WHAT IS THE MASTER'S DEGREE IN SMART GRIDS (MSG)?

The Master's Degree in Smart Grids (MSG) is a Master of Science Degree with 90 ECTS credits, taught by the University of Strathclyde and the ICAI School of Engineering. The main objective of the program is to respond to the growing demand for engineers, needed to lead the ongoing process of the digitalization of the electric grid.

This program provides students with a detailed understanding of the operation and planning of grids under this new paradigm, along with new business opportunities and models that are arising in this constantly changing field. It has been developed in close collaboration with Iberdrola. This alliance guarantees both the practical component, thanks to the participation of industry, and the academic rigor of the courses.

A KEY ROLE IN THE ENERGY TRANSITION

  • Energy: The transformation of energy is essential to achieve the desired goal of sustainability. The energy transition should be orientated toward this.
  • Electricity: Electricity is the form of energy that will play the most relevant role in this transition. Electrical networks are essential to facilitate the energy transition.
  • Smart Grids: Smart grids are the electrical networks that facilitate the energy transition, making intensive use of new technologies, especially those that allow their digitalization.
  • Social Aspects: In this transition, the social component plays an essential role through education and training at all levels.

OBJECTIVES

The main objective of the program is to respond to the growing demand for engineers needed to lead the ongoing process of the digitalization of the electric grid.

These engineers will need to master both the Power Systems and the Digital Telecommunication technologies present in this new energy paradigm. The present master program deepens on these two main subjects and their interdependencies.
