This master’s degree in Electronic Engineering (MEE) at the University of Catalonia provides graduates with a broad profile that includes skills and expertise in power, analogue and RF electronics, instrumentation and sensors, digital systems, micro and nanotechnologies, and microelectronics. After the first, compulsory subject area, students can choose from a wide variety of subjects in order to acquire a general profile, specialise in a field, or engage in research and pursue a doctoral degree.
The aim is for the graduates to enter modern industry as benchmark professionals in a new multidisciplinary work and production scenario. To increase their employability, students can take both the master’s thesis and some of the ECTS credits for optional subjects in a company or laboratory.
MEE has a strong international character. It is taught entirely in English and attracts a large number of students from other countries.
Given the cross-disciplinary nature of electronics, graduates of this degree may pursue careers in a broad range of sectors related to electronic technology, such as ICT systems, medical electronics, consumer electronics, control systems, robotics, automation, electromagnetic compatibility, microelectronic design, smart sensors and data acquisition systems.
Companies operating in these sectors offer high added value in terms of technology and are therefore in need of professionals trained to master's degree level. Many of these companies foster technology innovation and have a highly dynamic presence in a strongly competitive market, which they achieve through research.
Generic competencies are the skills that graduates acquire regardless of the specific course or field of study. The generic competencies established by the UPC are capacity for innovation and entrepreneurship, sustainability and social commitment, knowledge of a foreign language (preferably English), teamwork and proper use of information resources.
