Technical Industrial Engineer in Electrical Engineering (1st cycle degree)
The studies leading to a degree in Technical Industrial Engineering, specialising in Electrical Engineering, aim to provide students with specific training in the field of electrical technology applied to the industrial setting.
In the last year of the degree course students can choose from three specialist pathways:
- Regulation and Protection of Electrical Machinery, Remote Operation and New Technologies in Electrical Systems. This first area covers the protection and control (including remote control) of electrical machinery.
- Calculus of Electrical Power Lines and Alternative Energy-based Electrical Installations; Home Systems. In this second area, studies cover the calculus of power transmission lines and possible ways of producing electrical power from the so-called alternative energies. Students are also trained in the control of intelligent buildings.
- Industrial Applications of Electronics and Computing; Computer Control and Automation. In this third area, students acquire a thorough understanding of how electronics and computing are applied to electrical machinery.
Graduates with a degree in Technical Industrial Engineering, specialising in Electrical Engineering, are prepared to pursue a career in the following fields:
- Quality management and implementation; occupational risk prevention; regulation and control of electrical installations and machinery, and health and hygiene in the workplace.
- Designing grid-connected wind and solar power plants, as well as electrical installations for wind and solar power generation plants that are not connected to the grid.
- Technical management in private enterprises and in the public administration; technical offices; business administration and organising production, in addition to drafting, managing and executing projects.
- Calculus of power lines and designing electrical machinery; certifications; legal consultancy and experts' reports for insurance purposes, legal proceedings and the like.
- Electrometry and electrical power management, setting up electrical installations; power station maintenance.
