Power Academy

Cardiff is one of six universities across the UK selected to join the prestigious Power Academy. The Power Academy was formed by power companies in association with the professional engineering institution, the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), to address the skills shortage in power engineering.

The Academy has been established to encourage talented students to pursue IET accredited degree programmes with a significant power engineering element. It offers financial support and training to enable high quality students to obtain the qualifications and skills for a career in electrical engineering. This support is in the form of assistance with tuition fees, course materials and living costs, as well as vocational training opportunities and improved career prospects.
