    IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT – ACADEMIC YEAR 2021/22

    This master program is planned to be taught On- Campus, in the academic year 2021/22.
    In the event that capacity limitations persist in the classrooms at the beginning of the course due to risks derived from the COVID-19 pandemic, students must follow the sessions that are determined synchronously online. The master program will set the most appropriate shift system, always ensuring the maximum presence of all its students.
    It is recommended to have a portable computer equipment for the follow-up of those training activities that are determined. This equipment is essential for carrying out practices in virtual environments in university classrooms that do not have computer stations.
    International students who prove difficulties or delays in obtaining their visas and entering Spain, may request remote teaching until they may join the classes on-campus.

    The development of renewal energies requires professionals who have specialized training and can join a labor market whose demand for expert personnel continues to grow. The program benefits from the research excellence of Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, witnessed in the marked international character of its faculty, their full-time commitment and their publications in world-class journals.

    The general objective of the Master’s in Renewable Energies in Electrical Systems is to train professionals who can carry out their activity in the electrical sector and in the renewable energies sector, working on the development and technological innovation of these emerging technologies.

    Education in this Master’s will deal mainly with the following aspects:

    • Technology of renewable energies
    • Management and evaluation of the profitability of renewable energy projects and companies
    • Specific education focused on intelligent networks

    Education and training will be coordinated and taught by Universidad Carlos III de Madrid faculty, with extensive teaching and research experience in renewable energies, as well as with collaboration from industry experts.

    • TRAINING ROUTES

      Graduates should be able to conduct and evaluate renewable energy projects, especially with regard to the electricity-related elements included. They should be able to collaborate with companies and organizations in activities to develop new products and technology. They should also be able to determine the economic and technical viability of renewable energy projects, taking into account the law, regulations and the general regulatory environment.

      The curriculum makes these routes to employment available through the selection of appropriate elective subjects to complement the usual specific training for this Master's Degree. However there is no specific group of subjects (pathways, elective blocks, etc.) given that the Master's qualification in itself is already specific enough.

      The goal of this Master's Degree is to produce graduates who are employable in industry and it has been designed to include a special focus on collaboration in this sector. This collaboration is mainly directed in three ways:

      • Professional participants from industry within the Master's Degree's teaching staff.
      • The chance to work on the Master's Thesis in an industry context, supervised by professionals.
      • Industry scholarships for students
    • MASTER’S THESIS

      The Master's Thesis is the culmination of the course and it is intended to expand on the students' ability to produce original work on one of the degree's topics, in which the acquired knowledge will be synthesized. Students will also work on presentation skills and how to defend their work and the conclusions they draw. One-to-one supervision is offered for the Master's Thesis.

      As part of the Master's Thesis, almost all the assignments are carried out in companies and agencies outside the university where students can become familiar with a different context and broaden their knowledge through practically-focused work, meaning an introduction to the activities they will undertake when they enter the world of work. One-to-one supervision is also offered for these tasks.

      External examples of Master's Theses:

      • Control of energy storage devices in electrical networks
      • Development of home automation systems for increased energy efficiency
      • Review of models for estimating and predicting direct normal irradiance.
