Why this postgraduate course?
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 Mobility, 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.
Promoted by:
Aims
  • To learn about the operating principles of the various sources of conventional and renewable energies.
