Gregory Kotsis from MSc SENSE does exactly what he studied, working at IREC, the Catalonia Institute for Energy Research in Barcelona. At IREC he works as a project engineer on a project in power system economics funded by the European Commission.
The international environment of MSc SENSE prepares you for a global career in electrical power engineering, especially in the growing field of restructuring existing power grids into smart grids.
MSc SENSE provides you with the in-depth knowledge and broad competence you need for a professional industrial career in electric power development, production, system design and grid operation. Industrial partners supporting MSc SENSE have indicated a strong need to recruit new employees with the competences provided by the programme. Just as importantly, SENSE also prepares you for continued research studies at higher academic institutions.
What’s more, the programme will prove invaluable to entrepreneurs wanting to turn good ideas into commercial products or services. The mandatory country mobility also strengthens your credentials on the international job market and close interaction with industrial partners opens up many interesting opportunities.
Starting from fall 2014, first year students at KTH will study the course ‘Innovation and entrepreneurship in electrical engineering’. In this course, you will combine your engineering skills with an understanding of innovation processes to learn how to develop new products and services in the smart grids area.
