The Department of Electric Power Engineering at Technical University of Košice is one of the profiling departments of Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics. It was founded on the 1st October 1973 as the independent science and research unit of the faculty. The most important structural changes of the department are: integration of the original department with the Department of Electrical Heating and Electrochemistry on the 1st September 1981 and incorporation of the Department of High Voltage into the Department of Electric Power Engineering on the 1st October 2003.

According to the last accreditation, the Department of Electric Power Engineering guarantees these study programmes: Electric Power Engineering in bachelor, master and doctoral degree courses. The department is responsible for education of fundamental subjects of the study programmes: Transmission and Distribution of Electricity, Electric Power Plants, Electric Power System Operation, Electric Installation and Overhead Lines,Diagnostics of Electrical Power Engineering Equipments, Unconventional PowerSources, Electro Heat and Lighting Engineering. The department develops educational process also in cooperation with foreignuniversities using ERASMUS programmes. The Department of Electric Power Engineering at FEI TU of Košice is the only department in Slovakia with accredited study programmes in all three degree levelsof university studies.

The department provides the education of electrical engineers, self-employedelectrical engineers and electrical engineers for activities supervision or operation supervision in the range for electrical devices without voltage constraint including lightning conductors for objects without detonation risk.

The department staff has worked on several national and international grant projects, focused on: Control of Electric power system of Slovak Republic and electricity market in conditions of European Union, Utilisation of artificial intelligence elements for electric power engineering control processes, Electrical relays and electric power system stability, Solving of overhead power lines mechanics in three dimensional space, Illumination of spaces and lighting sources, Solar devices with optimal efficiency, Solar system properties, Diagnostics of electric power equipments. High-quality results of science and research activities of the department staffare confirmed by the wide cooperation with the electric power companies (SEPS, VSE, Siemens, ABB, etc.).
