Energy has become one of the most important inputs to ensure the competitiveness of companies, and therefore the generation of jobs, within an international context of high competition.

The Master of Science with specialization in Energy Engineering allows its students to become specialists in topics such as efficient use of electrical and thermal energy, quality of electrical energy, analysis of electrical networks applied to the industrial sector and the national electrical system, design of power electronics for the control of large wind generators, solar farms and motor control. You can do technical-economic studies on advantages and disadvantages of the different electricity generation systems available such as combined cycles, wind, solar, biomass generation, and understand the business opportunities in those areas. Topics such as Smart Grids, distributed generation, FACTS, SVC, are constantly growing within the master's degree.

Addressed to

Electrical, mechanical, chemical, physical, mechatronic and similar engineers.

Objective of the program

Train specialists in the major issues of the national energy sector and apply their knowledge in the new strategic areas of high labor demand, such as the efficient use of energy, clean energy, distributed generation, power electronics, converters electronics, electric vehicles, generation, transmission and traditional distribution and their migration to Smart Grids.
