Renewable Energies and the Electric Vehicle

Postgraduate course. Face-to-face.


UPC School

This postgraduate course can be attended as part of the master's degree Enertronics.

Shortly we will publish updated information about the new edition of this programme.

Nobody could question that among the major challenges facing humanity is the challenge of providing a solution to energy systems. Our future largely depends on our ability to identify and manage future energy techniques. Electronic, IT and communication technologies must be included in the design of the energy systems of the coming years. This innovative concept, which enables integrated solutions to be identified, has been termed Enertronics.

This is a concept which brings together different technologies in topics such as power electronics, communications automation, electrical systems energy, and programming and microprocessor technologies, all of which are aspects which companies require from their professionals. Nowadays organisations require the figure of the enertronic engineer who, when thinking of a solution to an energy system, also takes the electrical part or the bit microprocessor programming into account.

This postgraduate course in Renewable Energies and the Electric Vehicle, which is part of the Masters programme, covers fundamental knowledge on electrical engineering and electricity generation, enabling the analysis and understanding of circuits and electric motors, and also the applications of renewable wind and photovoltaic energies and the various technologies related to electrical mobility.


  • To learn about the operating principles of the various sources of conventional and renewable energies.
  • To design, analyse and control energy equipment based on renewable energies.
  • To design, analyse and control the various concepts of electric vehicles.

Who is it for

  • Recent engineer graduates who wish to steer their career towards the energy sector.
  • Experienced professionals who are seeking an overview of energy systems and to learn about enertronics .
  • Industrial engineers from various specialisations.
