Any person who has an official Spanish university degree, or a degree issued by a higher education institution of the EHEA that empowers the country issuing the degree to access official master's degrees. Students with a foreign qualification (external to the EESS) can also take this Master's degree, which is homologated or not approved, provided that the level of training is equivalent to the degree titles and that it authorizes the issuing country to access official master's degrees.
This Master is aimed, preferably, at Technical Engineers, Engineering Graduates and Engineers or interested in Power Systems related to Efficient Energy Conversion, who are willing to work in a multidisciplinary, multinational and multicultural environment. In any case, those who begin studies in this degree must have elementary knowledge at the degree level of both a technological nature (electrical, electronic and automatic technology) and management (energy efficiency, techno-economic management). Likewise, students must prove a sufficient level of English, at least: IELTS at least 6.0 with a minimum score of 5.0 in each section, TOEFL (paper based) at least 550 with a minimum of 4.0 in the writing section or TOEFL (IBT ) minimum of 79 with no less than 17 in any section.Professional outingsThis Master has been endowed with a double approach: scientific and professional.
In the scientific branch, the training offered allows us to deepen the design of power applications with two aspects: electrical power systems and electric and hybrid traction systems. The graduate student will become part of a research group in the field of renewable energies and electric traction, either belonging to the University of Oviedo as well as to external companies and companies.
In the professional branch, people whose future work is framed within management will be trained in companies in the energy sector. For this, the corresponding subjects have been designed taking into account both the management of energy in large consumers and the generation and distribution of energy in the liberalized electricity market.CurriculumThe study plan consists of 4 semesters spread over two years.The first semester has been conceived as equalization, in order to establish a uniform level of knowledge among students with different basic training. This semester it offers a bag of optional subjects to facilitate the matching mechanism.
The second semester offers a series of compulsory subjects for all students.
The third semester has been designed according to two possible itineraries: professional and researcher. The first of them is aimed at acquiring specific competencies related to electrical energy management, with a special focus on the main line of energy efficiency and renewable energies. The second delves into the technological development and industrial design established in the specific competencies of the master lines: "Power systems" and "Electric / Hybrid Vehicle".
The last semester allows you to complete the training. The subjects taught in this semester include aspects related to the socio-economic impact of the technologies involved in the Master. In addition, a Master's Final Project is carried out.
