Dr David Vega-Maza from the University of Aberdeen has developed a carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) component for an international Masters programme on smart grid technology being delivered in Egypt.
The three-year Smart Grid Technology – a Program Master (SGT-MaP) has been developed by a consortium led by another SCCS partner institute, the University of Strathclyde.
Funded by the EU, the Masters programme stems from the collaborative efforts of a consortium of Egyptian and European academic institution partners across the fields of electrical power and control engineering, IT engineering, and communication engineering.
Smart grid laboratories will be established at four Egyptian universities to support the programme.
The CCUS component is the latest Masters offering from the SCCS partnership, which also includes programmes at the University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University.
The SGT-MaP consortium partners are:
- Alexandria University, Egypt
- Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport, Egypt
- Aswan University, Egypt
- Helwan University, Egypt
- University of Aberdeen, UK
- University of Seville, Spain
- University of Klagenfurt, Austria
- University of Strathclyde, UK
