"You will work in one of the most strategic sectors of the Basque Country"
Thanks to the knowledge and skills acquired during the Bachelor's Degree in Energy Engineering, you will be able to work performing multiple tasks of considerable value for companies. Among the wide variety of jobs for which you will be qualified, the following are particularly noteworthy:
Designing electrical installations
Analysing, designing, maintaining and integrating equipment and installations in the field of energy generation, transport, distribution and consumption.
Management and maintenance of power plants and energy networks
Supervision and maintenance of power plants and energy networks, with a special focus on renewable energies.
Energy coordination in companies and institutions
You will be responsible for managing and coordinating organisations with high energy consumption in order to optimise their energy efficiency.
Purchase and sale of energy services
You will be able to communicate effectively with international suppliers of energy products and services.
Analysing trends and detecting new opportunities to introduce new energy products to the market.
Auditing and certifying products
You will be able to carry out studies and issue energy certifications for products, services and processes.
Managing projects and people
You will be able to manage, coordinate, design and plan energy-related tasks and lead the entire team involved.
As energy is a necessary raw material for practically any productive or industrial process, the practice-based work methodology of the Bachelor's Degree in Energy Engineering will equip you with the necessary skills to work with energy in multiple sectors:
Motor vehicle industry
Regarding the different processes for generating, storing and distributing the energy needed to drive electric and hybrid cars.
Industry and machine tools
Participating in the development of power supply systems to make production more energy efficient.
Participating in the analysis, design and development of technologies related to energy generation, storage and distribution in the renewable energy sector.
Companies that carry out the planning, management and implementation of high-level energy engineering projects.
You will be able to work in the supervision and maintenance of the production, storage and distribution network of different types of energy production plants.
A smart neighborhood in Vitoria-Gasteiz
The energy model in housing, neighborhoods and cities is slowly changing and Mondragon Unibertsitatea is actively participating in several pilot tests. One of them has been the transformation of the Coronación neighborhood in Vitoria-Gasteiz. Aligned with the strategy of smart cities without C02, the European project SmartenCity has implemented an action plan: more than 300 houses in the neighborhood have been termally isolated, a geothermal power plant has been installed, a monitoring system has been created and the electric bus line has also been incorporated. Energy Engineers can make contributions in different areas and Mondragon Unibertsitatea is fully involved in this type of real innovation projects.
The possibilities offered by the sea from an energy point of view
Professor Markel Peñala explains in this Teknopolis session the possibilities offered by the sea from an energy point of view, as well as the possibilities for Basque industry to be at the forefront in the marine energy sector. Markel is a lecturer and researcher at Mondragon Unibertsitatea and works with several companies and institutions on research and transfer projects related to wind energy.
