Master in renewable energies


Program Description


The field of renewable energy is advancing at an amazing speed, and is now the world's first choice in energy generation. We live in the ideal moment to study the master in renewable energies. Last year, investment in renewable energy worldwide surpassed the investment in traditional energy for the second consecutive year.

The current energetic framework implies the need for specialized professionals, technicians trained with specialized knowledge. People who dominate energy sources and types of renewable energy (wind, solar, photovoltaic, thermal, mini hydraulics, biomass, ...), financing lines, energy efficiency and everything related to the world Of renewable energies.

The master in renewable energies of the IMF, seeks to train professionals with the skills, knowledge and techniques to be able to develop and implement renewable energies in different spheres: administration, companies or energy industry.

Companies are looking for technicians and increasingly need to have business projects in the area of ​​renewable energy. Therefore, the training program of the master is intended to deepen the use, the different uses, the technical feasibility of the projects and their environmental impact. When studying renewable energies, the student will achieve a specialization in the area and an approach to the development, assembly, design and maintenance of generating facilities.

Society and companies are increasingly aware of the need to search for renewable and alternative energy sources, whether for corporate social responsibility or in response to public opinion. For this reason, there is a range of business and professional opportunities in the field of clean energy.
