The MRes Low Carbon Electrical Power and Energy Technology programme provides you with advanced and systematic education and training in the areas of electronic science and technology.

Designed in response to the rapid development of electric power and energy technology in China and worldwide, the programme contains modules covering solar converters, wind power systems, energy storage technology and smart grids.

There is a 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.

Why Should I Study At XJTLU?

  • Learn in world-class facilities with advanced experimental equipment, including a network analyser, power analyser and electrical machine testing system
  • Engage in cutting-edge research areas such as intelligent and efficient utilisation of emerging electrical power and energy technologies
  • Benefit with the University's close links with international universities, research centres and industry
  • Earn a University of Liverpool degree.

By the time you graduate from the MRes Low Carbon Electrical Power and Energy Technology programme, you will have:

  • an understanding of state-of-the-art electrical power and energy technology
  • the ability 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
  • experience in conducting extended research and developing project work.

The MRes LCEPET program will provide students advanced and systematic education and research training in the areas of electrical science and technology considering the vigorous development of electric power and energy technology in China and worldwide.

  • Core modules


  • Additional learning activities

    The completion of additional learning activities is required to obtain your master degree. The programme includes a total of 600 hours of Additional Learning Activities, most of which are chosen individually by students. Normally, required ALA hours will be distributed evenly across each semester, amounting to 200 hours per semester. Part-time programmes will normally require 100 to 150 hours per semester. They should normally be spread equally over teaching semesters and the summer and winter breaks.


Graduates from this programme are well prepared for roles in research and development, particularly in the area of electrical power and energy. Graduates may find employment in positions such as electric power system engineer, electric power system consultant, electrical technology consultant, electric power project manager, and sustainable cities and building design consultant.
