Automotive Electricity and Electronics. ELTICA

Postgraduate course. Face-to-face.


UPC School

The UPC has a clear commitment to collaboration in the automotive sector , as shown by the 10 editions of the Master MIGIA , 2 degrees of expertise in automotive, the existence of Chairs SEAT and Applus , postgraduate training in active safety and passive and body , automotive materials , etc . , the organization of conferences, seminars , conferences, etc. . and participation in R & D in different fields (materials, nanomaterials , electric vehicles , electricity and electronics , security, etc. . ) . The Government of Spain has opted for training and innovation as key elements for economic development and pays special attention to the automobile sector. The automotive sector is one of the main engines of the national economy , Catalonia being one of the main Spanish and European regions in terms of activity in this sector. The occupations most in demand by the industry technical profiles correspond to areas intended for R & D , design and engineering ( automotive sector report , CEAM 2010).

With specific reference to the contents of this postgraduate course , are missing , by the automotive industry professionals specialized in : the development of electrical system and wire harness in a vehicle, the different sources of energy, and management , to drive electric vehicles, electronic communication architecture , in some cases own and other adapted to the sector; analyze and reduce the susceptibility of components and parts to conducted or induced interference, the development of new electronic control units to reduce cost and weight of the vehicle; industrialization of plastics, specifically in the manufacture of lighting systems , among others detailed in the specific competencies of the program.

This situation forces the sector to hire specialists from outside our borders and / or professional training after recruitment , with the consequent use of resources without a comprehensive program of learning or a structure that facilitates the acquisition of knowledge and skills . Furthermore , continuous changes , tools , technologies, social requirements , legislation, etc. . , Advise that there is a curriculum for continuing education of professionals, keep up to date knowledge and facilitate innovation. It is noteworthy that Catalonia has the only center of automotive design in Spain , so the need for professionals with expertise in this area is critical and is not covered by the current academic offerings. In addition to the center, there are numerous regional providers and companies that are part of the automotive industry and whose competitiveness at national and international level depends largely on the value and contribute their professional training . Similarly no publications covering the development process of a vehicle as companies consider confidential and that makes independent learning .


The primary objective is to train people ELTICA be able to:

1. Identify, formulate and solve optimally problems in the electrical and electronic fields in an automobile.
Two. Understand the technologies, trends and the most common tools in this field.
Three. Conceive, design, implement and adopt research methods that lead to the generation of knowledge and innovation.
April. Knowing and applying existing technologies in the market as well as emerging technologies and acquire the skills necessary to propose applications
May. Understand and convey information-knowledge from scientifictechnical documentation.
6. Analyze and propose projects considering the different aspects of economic activity, with sustainability criteria.

Who is it for?

As a result of the training, the course qualifies for positions of responsibility:

Design of electrical and electronic systems, especially for automotive
· Developing.
