Program description

University Master's Degree in Electric Vehicle Technologies

The development of new systems of intelligent, environmentally friendly and integrated transport systems is one of the most important challenges in the 21st century, above all in terms of emissions and the type of energy used. The social interest and industrial business generated by electric vehicles increase the demand for professionals qualified in all the related areas of technology.

The University Master's Degree in Electric Vehicle Technologies is the first official master's degree in the whole of Spain specialising in electric cars. The aim of this master's degree is to teach engineers about the different technologies from the areas of electronic engineering and control that can be applied to the development of electric and hybrid vehicles and even conventional vehicles.

The progressive implementation of electric vehicles will increase the need for engineers with specific knowledge in this ambit; therefore, the principal objective of the master's degree is to produce specialised engineers in collaboration with businesses in this sector and with links to the territory.

The course will be taught in Spanish and Catalan. Some of the materials provided are in English.

Admission requirements

The Master's Degree is aimed at:

  • Graduates in Industrial Electronic Engineering and Automation, Electrical Engineering, Industrial Technologies Engineering, Energy Engineering, Telecommunications Systems and Services Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Engineering in Naval Systems and Technologies, Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Telecommunications Engineering, Aeronautical Engineering, Automation and Industrial Electronic Engineering, Electronic Engineering and related ambits.
  • Graduates with official university bachelor's degrees in: Industrial Technical Engineering, specialising in Industrial Electronics; Industrial Technical Engineering, specialising in Electricity; Technical Telecommunications Engineering, specialising in Electronic Systems; and related ambits.
