About this program

Master's Degree in Electronic Engineering

The master's degree in Electronic Engineering caters for the needs of two types of students: those who wish to focus on a professional career and those looking to pursue a doctoral degree in Electronic Engineering.

This master’s degree 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.

Admission requirements

General requirements

  • An official Spanish university qualification or an official university qualification issued by a university in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) that qualifies the holder for admission to a master's degree.
  • A qualification issued by a university in a country that is not in the EHEA. If the qualification has not been homologated, the UPC will verify that the course of study corresponds to a level of education equivalent to an official Spanish university degree and that the qualification obtained would provide admission to a master’s degree in the country in which it was awarded. This access route in no way implies the homologation of the qualification or its recognition for any purpose other than admission to the master's degree. The master's degree will, however, be fully and legally valid.

Specific requirements

This 120-credit master's programme consists of four semesters: bridging, core, specialisation and thesis. The syllabus of the first two semesters is compulsory, depending on the admission level. The syllabus of the specialisation semester is optional and focuses on both professional training and research. There are four specialisations: Power Electronics, Devices and Microsystems, Integrated Circuits and Systems, and Instrumentation and Measurements.
