Components and Mecatronic Systems

Postgraduate course. Face-to-face.


UPC School

This postgraduate course can be attended as part of the master's degree Mechatronics or as part of the master's degree Enertrónica.

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.
