006 BSc Electric Power Engineering, bachelor



Target Group and Admission Requirements

General Admission requirements + 2FY and 3MX, pre-course, 2-year technical trade school or prior experiential learning + TRES

Aim of the Programme

You will receive a broad introduction to central topics related to electrical power, such as measurement, regulation-and control-electronics, programmable logic controller (PLC), electrical machines and electrical plants, alternating current and high-voltage technology. You will also learn how energy is converted to electrical energy, and how it is transported and used. Through projects, you will learn about problem-solving, structured work-methodology.

As an electric power engineer, you will be well prepared for engineering tasks in factories and organisations which use and deliver electrical/electronic equipment, such as power producers, the electro-technical industry and suppliers to both of the above.

Further Education opportunities

You may seek admission to the 2-year Master’s programme (civil-engineer programme) Systems and Control Engineering at Telemark University College or Master`s programmes at other university colleges and universities in Norway or abroad.

EL5506 Project EL5 in the 5th semester, and PRH606 Main Project in the 6th semester, may be replaced by FB5106 Student Business Venture.

FBV5006 Mathematics III is recommended for students who wish to study for a Master’s degree in technical subjects.

It is possible to apply to have other courses approved as replacements for elective courses at Telemark University College and other institutions of education.


Assessment Methods

The Bachelor’s degree programmes at the Faculty of Technology are project-oriented, that is, many of the courses are conducted as projects. This pedagogical method provides students with greater responsibility for their own learning as well as experience with problem analysis, seeking information and problem solving. Work is done in groups, often in close cooperation with local businesses. The group produces a project report which is submitted, presented and defended in an oral examination. Most subjects are taken over one semester and include continuous assessment and final assessment and examinations.

Students will be offered an opportunity to study abroad during the programme. Telemark University College has exchange agreements with colleges and universities in Belgium, England, France, Italy, China, Nepal, Portugal, Sri-Lanka, Spain, Germany and the USA.

Students who have a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering are qualified to apply directly for enrolment on the Master’s degree programme at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, if certain requirements are met.

Minor adjustments may occur during the academic year, subject to the decision of the Dean
