For this, an academic program has been created that offers advanced training and integrated knowledge that will allow students to dedicate themselves to industrial or research activities in the energy sector. The plan has been designed to respond to the main challenges in the energy sector and focuses especially on issues of innovation, sustainability and efficiency.
With the aim of offering more specialized specific training, the Master presents two itineraries:Renewable Energies and Power Systems.
Sustainable transport.Through these itineraries and a holistic approach, the topics addressed in the Master focus on the main aspects of electrical energy management and new transportation systems, such as:
With all this, it is intended that the students of this Erasmus Mundus obtain an updated, specialized and international training that allows them to develop a professional career in this field or dedicate themselves to research.The management of generation technologies, especially renewable energy sources.
The distribution interface, including power electronics converters.

The application of power electronics for electric and hybrid vehicles.CurriculumThis course is structured in two academic years, organized in four semesters of 30 ECTS credits each. Students can design their own curriculum according to their previous profile and professional interests, although two specific itineraries are recommended: Sustainable Transport and Electronic Power Systems. As part of the study plan, students will take subjects in at least 3 different countries depending on the chosen profile. Likewise, students who complete this Erasmus Mundus Master will obtain a joint degree recognized by the 4 participating institutions.
All students will attend an introductory course at the University of Oviedo, as well as a subsequent Leveling Course with which it is intended to compensate for the different profiles and previous training.
