Basic skillsPossess and understand knowledge that provides a basis or opportunity to be original in the development and / or application of ideas, often in a research context
That the students know how to apply the acquired knowledge and their problem-solving capacity in new or little-known environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their area of study
That students are able to integrate knowledge and face the complexity of formulating judgments from information that, being incomplete or limited, includes reflections on the social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments.
That students know how to communicate their conclusions and the latest knowledge and reasons that support them to specialized and non-specialized audiences in a clear and unambiguous way.
That students have the learning skills that allow them to continue studying in a way that will be largely self-directed or autonomous.CurriculumCredit transfer and recognition:
Recognition of credits: consists of the acceptance by a university of the credits that were obtained in an official education, in the same or in another university, and that are computed in other different teachings for the purposes of obtaining an official degree.
Transfer of credits: implies that in the official academic documents accrediting the successive teachings for each student, the totality of the credits obtained in official teachings taken previously, in the same or in another university, that have not led to the obtaining of an official title.SaidasRegarding the labor market, there are no exhaustive official statistics that allow us to specify exactly how many jobs are given in the field of renewable energies. Anyway, different reports estimate direct and indirect employment in renewable energies in Spain between 60,950 and 70,750, of which just over 60% would be direct. The technologies with the greatest job creation are wind and biomass, which together account for between 52 and 62% of the total. Solar technology, both thermal and photovoltaic, together account for between 16 and 19% of the total.
