The Master in Electrical Engineering aims to provide high quality training with a professional profile. It aims at acquiring skills in key areas for national development, for the creation of applied knowledge and the production of wealth in industry and organisations. Its structure and functioning allow for the acquisition of skills in accordance with Portuguese law and the Bologna Process, as well as with the recommendations of national and international professional bodies.
Scholarship is awarded by the State, on a non-refundable basis, whenever the household in which the student is integrated does not have an adequate minimum level of financial resources.
The Master in Electrical Engineering is a second cycle of studies aimed either at professionals integrated into the job market or at students who have completed a first cycle of studies in the area of Electrical Engineering or similar.
The Master proposes two transversal areas of specialization and respective profiles of competences, which integrate and articulate, in a scientifically coherent and professionally very relevant way, the areas of Energy Systems, Automation and Communications.
The area of specialization in “Automation and Communications in Energy Systems” corresponds to an intervention profile in the fields of production, distribution and management of electric energy systems, with capacity for analysis and evaluation of solutions in the areas of electric energy, renewable energy sources and the environmental impacts of energy production, transport and use. This profile includes training in the areas of energy systems, renewable energies, environmental management, electric vehicles and energy markets.
The area of specialization in “Automation and Communications in Industrial Systems” corresponds to a profile of intervention in the fields of systems and integrated solutions for automation and energy use in organizations in general and in industry in particular. This profile includes training in the areas of robotic systems, industrial systems integration, wireless communications and mobility and the development of industrial applications for vision and multimedia systems.
Both profiles include training and common general skills in mathematics applied to engineering, automation and control systems, applied information systems, building automation and home automation, and business management.
Completion of this cycle of studies will also allow the continuation of studies, satisfying the objectives of mobility and lifelong training in the European higher education space.
