Professional Science Master’s
in Electrical Power Engineering
Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture
WSU’s Professional Science Master’s (PSM) in Electrical Power Engineering combines advanced technical courses with professional management training to help students achieve high-paying employment.
An innovative and relatively new type of degree program, a Professional Science Master’s, or PSM, trains students in an advanced scientific/engineering field while also teaching them the skills to be leaders and managers in a professional environment.
Graduates will gain both an in-depth knowledge of electrical power engineering and the managerial skills needed to advance in the industry. Engineering courses cover power systems analysis, power system economics, electricity markets, transmission systems, distribution systems, renewable energy resources, performance of power systems, power electronics, power system protection, and high-voltage engineering. Business courses range from law to finance to project management.
The 30-credit program also includes an industry-based internship project, designed to provide real-world experience and valuable networking connections. This, plus the combination of core technical and business courses with flexible electives, means you will be uniquely qualified to meet the increasing demand for power engineering leaders with both technical skills and professional management training.
- WSU master’s in power systems engineering faculty from the Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture includes recognized experts in all areas of electrical power engineering, including a member of the National Academy of Engineering, and four faculty members who are fellows of the Institute of Electronic and Electrical Engineers.
- PSMs are respected degrees that are highly valued by employers looking for skilled scientists who can also function as leaders and managers in their organization.
Program of Study—30 semester credits
The program requires the completion of 30 credits of coursework including 18 credits of power engineering courses, 9 credits of professional courses, and 3 credits of a capstone project course (internship). For more detailed information, please visit the program website.
