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 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.
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.

Learning methodology

The teaching methodology of the programme facilitates the student's learning and the achievement of the necessary competences.

Learning tools
Participatory lectures
A presentation of the conceptual foundations of the content to be taught, promoting interaction with the students to guide them in their learning of the different contents and the development of the established competences.
Practical classroom sessions
Knowledge is applied to a real or hypothetical environment, where specific aspects are identified and worked on to facilitate understanding, with the support from teaching staff.
Solving exercises
Solutions are worked on by practising routines, applying formulas and algorithms, and procedures are followed for transforming the available information and interpreting the results.
Assessment criteria
Attendance
At least 80% attendance of teaching hours is required.
Solving exercises, questionnaires or exams
Individual tests aimed at assessing the degree of learning and the acquisition of competences.
Work placements & employment service
Students can access job offers in their field of specialisation on the My_Tech_Space virtual campus. Applications made from this site will be treated confidentially. Hundreds of offers of the UPC School of Professional & Executive Development employment service appear annually. The offers range from formal contracts to work placement agreements.
