About

The Master is mainly aimed at graduates or graduates in Sciences, preferably Physical, Chemical and Geological , as well as Engineers and graduates in Engineering, who are interested in developing a professional activity in the field of energy, both in the private sector and public, be it in tasks of research, development, and innovation, such as advisory, consulting, design or technical assistance. This is one of the fundamental objectives of this Master, to train future teachers in those professionalizing aspects that allow them to carry out their activity in the professional field with the same guarantees that they can carry out tasks in the academic or research field.

This Master is also aimed at Engineers and Engineering graduates who intend to carry out their activity in the professional energy sector, either in private companies or in public bodies and organizations. Today, the energy sector is thought to represent one of the greatest poles of attraction for future professionals, given the undeniable role that this field will play in the development of today's society. It is evident that in the current state of affairs, the energy sector will require well-trained and adequately prepared professionals, and that it will offer, in return, numerous opportunities to undergraduate and bachelor students, which is why, we believe, makes it necessary to implement such training in the field of education. For this reason, it is thought that this Master will enjoy a high acceptance among the university population, both Science and Engineering students, especially those whose motivation is oriented towards the job market.

The Master in Energy has a professional nature as its main purpose, although this objective is perfectly complemented by research activities, given that the energy business sector currently requires well-trained professionals not only in terms of solving practical aspects and concrete, but actively participate in R & D & I actions that constitute one of the most relevant aspects of companies in the sector, both in Spain and abroad.
