The current market climate in the automotive sector demonstrates a need for implementing new technologies that reduce dependence on petroleum and, most importantly, minimise pollution. There is a growing consciousness on the part of the consumer who wants to try to make their environmental impact as small as possible. This is why for a long time now the automobile industry and local governments have already been working on alternatives like hybrid vehicles and completely electric cars as a way to face the challenges of research, development and innovation involved with these types of vehicles.
In the automotive sector and has begun a collaboration with hitherto little companies related to the sector, collaboration requires adaptation by professionals and the arrival of new training profiles. To complement this, the appearance of these vehicles requires the adaptation of existing infrastructure as well as the current mobility policies. Therefore, we offer a highly specialized education which makes it possible for students who successfully pass the course to be able to:
- Analyse the electric and hybrid (combined electric and traditional internal combustion engines) propulsion systems and technologies.
- Study the types and configurations of hybrids according to vehicle type.
- Improve energy storage systems and their internal power management.
- Learn the technical principles of the electric motors currently in use along with their charging systems and their energy storage systems.
- Development of the way the energy distribution network is managed and designed to ensure proper recharging of these vehicles in urban areas.
