Why Teesside?

After starting my career in the building service management industry, I realised there was still a lot I needed to learn to better help my clients. The MSc Electrical Power and Energy Systems course is perfectly aligned with my interests and ambitions. Modules such as Emerging Transmission Systems and Asset Management interest me as the training provides much-needed industry exposure.

Best thing about your course?

I like how the course is structured. It allows enough time for self-studying which is the ideal method to learn on a level 7 course. The effort and willingness of the lecturers is a big highlight. They do all they can to help resolve any problems we have and to help us better understand the content we are learning.

What is your favourite module?

Renewable Energy Conversion Systems, Emerging Transmission System and Smart Power Distribution are three modules that I particularly enjoy as I find the modules that include sharing information and critical thinking are helpful in personal and professional development.

What do you think about the campus?

The Teesside campus is great, I especially appreciate the 24/7 library and the facilities provided within. Having separate floors for undergraduate and postgraduate makes finding study space easy. There is a massive collection of both online and hard copy material for students to use for their studies and they cover every topic you could need. The campus heart is great, and the new Student Life building adds so much to the student experience.

Have you completed any work experience?

At Teesside you have access to Volun-tees which helps students find volunteer work. They helped become a volunteer at Scope, a local charity which helps local people suffering from disabilities. I am also part of the planning and organising committee of Bio-burst which is an event conducted by Teesside in collaboration with MIMA.

Would you recommend Teesside?

I would definitely recommend studying here. The facilities are of the highest standard and are everything a student will need during their studies. The lecturers and other staff members give you a lot of support and help with any problems or issues that may arise.
