    The development of renewable energies requires professionals with specific training who can be integrated into a labor market whose demand for specialized personnel will be increasing. The program benefits from the research excellence of Universidad Carlos III, which is reflected in the international character of its professors, their full-time dedication and their publications in prestigious 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:

    • Renewable energy and energy storage systems technology
    • Integration of renewable energies into electricity markets and systems
    • Renewable energy project management
    • Smart grids and microgrids

    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.

      Application

      The request is made electronically through our application. Before starting the admission process, please, read the following information:

      Requirements

      The following candidates may be admitted to the Master's Degree in Renewable Energy in Electrical Systems:

      • Those who have any of the following Bachelor's Degrees: Degree in Electrical Engineering, Degree in Energy Engineering, Degree in Industrial Electronic and Automatic Engineering, Degree in Mechanical Engineering or Degree in Industrial Technologies
      • Those who have a degree in Industrial Engineering
      • Those who have the degree of Industrial Technical Engineer in Electricity, Industrial Electronics and Mechanics
      • Those who hold degrees from other educational systems equivalent to any of the above

    • 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.
      • LSO testing procedures of representative series generation for solar thermal power plant simulation.
      • The impact of uncertainty on solar radiation measurements for the production of solar thermal power plants
      • Characterization of the Levelized Electric Cost of a typical hybrid FV-Wind system for rural electrification in Latin America.
      • Characterization and implementation of the Levelized Electric Cost of a typical SMH system for rural electrification in Latin America.
      • Characterization and implementation of a GIS for improvement the integration of PV panels in urban areas.
      • Energy evaluation and wind farm design
      • Comparative study on PE between the performance analysis parameters of different technologies.
      • Proposed methodology for calculating power loss and performance analysis of wind farms in accordance with IEC rules 12 and 26.
      • Design of the connection to of an offshore wind farm's to the high voltage electric grids in A.C.
      • Design of an isolated, hybrid or supported PV module solar system for single-family homes.
