Why 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.
Aims
  • 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.

La UPC, primera universidad en España y 'top 100' mundial en Ingeniería de Telecomunicaciones, Eléctrica y Electrónica
14-07-2016
La Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) es la universidad líder en España en Ingeniería de Telecomunicaciones , Eléctrica y Electrónica, ámbito en el que se posiciona en el puesto 21 en Europa y entre las 100 mejores del mundo según el Shanghai Ranking's Global Ranking of Academic subjects. Este ranking valora las mejores instituciones del mundo en siete disciplinas académicas de ingeniería. En el Shanghai Ranking's Global Ranking of Academic Subjects , editado por Shanghai Ranking Consultancy y publicado en junio, la UPC también encabeza las universidades politécnicas del Estado en Ingeniería y Ciencias del Medio Ambiente, e Ingeniería y Ciencia de los Materiales, y comparte la primera posición en Ingeniería y Ciencias de la Energía con la Universidad Politécnica de Valencia (UPV). Los tres indicadores en los que la UPC consigue mejor puntuación son el impacto normalizado de las citaciones (FWCU), las publicaciones con coautoría internacional (IC) y las publicaciones con coautoría empresarial (CC). Para formar parte del ranking, las instituciones tienen que disponer de un número mínimo de publicaciones científicas durante los últimos cinco años; en el caso de la ingeniería, de al menos 200, entre artículos, reseñas y actos de congresos, durante el periodo 2010 al 2014. En esta ocasión los editores han utilizado de referencia la base de datos bibliográfica Scopus, a diferencia del ranking general ARWU (conocido como el ranking se Shanghai), por el cual han utilizado, en los últimos 13 años, la Web of Science.
