What is the Master's Degree in Environment and Energy Transition?

In the current industrial context, all sectors are required to evolve to a situation that allows for the promotion of economic, social and industrial development, under a new social awareness and respect for the environment, sustainability in decision-making, and efficient strategies in the use of resources and energy at all times. For this reason, companies need employees with a technical profile, adapted to a general vision, with the capacity to make decisions and to design strategies that permit development within a new environmentally responsible and energy-sustainable context. The Master's Degree in Environment and Energy Transition was designed so that its students are trained specifically in this new profile, required and sought after by companies, subsequently making them natural leaders in the process of Environmental and Sustainable Energy Transition.
The Master's Degree in Environment and Energy Transition program has been designed to develop the skills and capabilities inherent to both degrees in one year. Work and effort is permanently guided by professors and tutors. In addition, students are in permanent contact with companies, whose employees participate as professors and faculty members, while offering full-time internships, including opportunities in international contexts.
