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 Mechatronic and Enertronic Components and Systems is part of the Masters programme, and provides training on data procurement and sensors, power electronics, electric actuators, microcontrollers and programmable logic or signal processing and control.
Aims
  • The integration of mechanics, electricity, electronics and information technologies into the design of components, equipment and mechanical systems to be able to make better products.
  • A better understanding of materials and processes.
  • Learn about the latest trends and information related to new materials and processes.
  • Evaluate the costs associated with manufacturing components (materials, processes, implements, production series¿).
  • Who is it for?
  • Industrial engineers or other technicians that work in the design and development of industrial systems.
  • Recent graduates who wish to work in the areas mentioned above (preferably students specialised in mechanical or electrical engineering).
  • Training Content

    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.
