A Post-Bologna Master in Automation and Communications in Energy Systems is presented, which aims to provide a high quality degree specially oriented for the professional environment in the Electrical Engineering Area. The structure and organization target the compliance with the Dublin Descriptors and the recommendations of national and international professional organizations. The master is composed of a Specialization Course, which has a set of course units representing 55% (66 ECTS) of the total number of credits (120 ECTS), and an Industry Internship, or an original Project, that represents 45% (54 ECTS) of the total credits. It has a highly industry oriented profile, and an after-work schedule. The ‘Energy and Automation Systems’ Specialization Area integrates the Energy, Automation and Communications basis areas in a profile that targets competences in the production, distribution and management of energy. The ‘Industrial Systems’ Specialization Area integrates the basis areas in a profile that targets competences for integrated automation and communication solutions in the industry and organizations. The master is specially oriented to develop competences with high potential for the creation of applied knowledge, and for the generation of high value in industry and institutions.
