ProfDip Power System Analysis

Graduate Taught (level 9 nfq, credits 20)

UCD offers a range of high-quality modules as part of its degree programmes. Traditionally, these modules have only been available to full-time students, although the content is of great interest to graduates working in industry.

The Government's July stimulus has provided funding to make these modules accessible to part-time learners who are based full-time in industry.

The Climate Action Plan launched in 2019 by the Irish Government defines a new growth strategy and roadmap to decarbonise the energy sector and renovate buildings and transportation to help cut energy bills and usage.
