Master in Environment and Intelligent Energy Management


Program Description

What is the Master in Environment and Intelligent Energy Management?

In the current industrial context, it is required that all sectors evolve to a situation that allows promoting economic, social and industrial development, always under a new awareness of respect for the environment, sustainability in decision-making, and efficient strategies in the use of resources and energy. For this reason, any company needs to have a technical and adapted profile with a general vision, with the ability to make decisions and to design strategies that adapt development to the new environmentally responsible and energy-sustainable situation. The Master in Environment and Intelligent Energy Management is born so that its students are specifically trained in this new profile that companies demand and need, making them natural leaders in the process of environmental and sustainable energy transition.

The Master's Program in Environment and Intelligent Energy Management has been designed to develop the skills and capacities of both degrees in one year. The work and effort is permanently guided by teachers and tutors. In addition, students will be in permanent contact with the company, which participates as faculty members and offering full-time internships, including international ones.
