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).

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 appear annually of the UPC School of Professional & Executive Development employment service .The offers range from formal contracts to work placement agreements.
Virtual Campus
The students on this postgraduate course will have access to the My_Tech_Space virtual campus, an effective work and communication platform for students, lecturers and course directors and coordinators. My_Tech_Space allows students to find background material for their classes, to work in teams, ask their lecturers questions, consult their marks, etc.
