Overview

FACULTY OF POWER AND ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING
A previously unimagined growth in the number of computer systems in the manufacturing industry sector worldwide requires that a new generation of highly qualified professionals are required to exploit emerging computer-based technologies and implement these in order to maximise the benefits from power and electrical engineering.

Around the world, the task of controlling electrical devices is one of understanding and administrating exceedingly complex control systems in order to ensure continuous and sustainable operation.

RTU is providing students with the professional skills needed to enter a successful career in the field of Computerised control as a highly trained specialist with the foreknowledge of new technology development and industry trends.

This Masters’ study programme provides a blend of knowledge from electrical and computer science, building upon the solid foundation achieved during Bachelor studies.

KEY FEATURES
Interacting Openly: At our faculties, interaction is encouraged between student-faculty-industry and through open interaction and discussion by established and growing minds, great things can be created and conceived. This is especially important for Masters Students when honing their interaction abilities.
Revision: The programme is annually revised according to new trends and demands in society and the field of Computer Control.

Career opportunities

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES
There is little value in providing a list of prospective career opportunities due to the unavoidable truth that behind every technological device in use today (including the devices themselves), there is a manufacturing process, control processes, an operational process and maintenance upgrade process which requires highly qualified personnel, able to control, maintain and ensure uninterrupted service.
