It's useful to know

The Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering will provide you with professional qualifications recognised by the Spanish State (Act 12/1986). This means that, as a graduate in Electrical Engineering, you will be able to do work that other professionals cannot do. You will also, of course, be able to carry out all the activities related with the industry sector that do not require professional attributes regulated by law. Thus, you will be able to operate in areas related to industrial engineering in general and electrical engineering in particular:

  • Generation, transport, distribution and use of electrical energy.
  • Electromechanical operations (electrical engines): regulation of speed and position.
  • Automation and control of industrial processes.
  • Industrial plants: electrical facilities and communications.
  • Sustainability: renewable energies, efficient energy management, intelligent distribution of electrical energy, social and environmental impact, electrical vehicles.
  • Home automation.
  • Design, development, preparation and industrial management of engineering projects.
  • Expert opinions, studies and reports.
  • Technical and financial advice, verification, control, maintenance, marketing, management, use, management, organisation, planning, production, quality and safety.

Careers

The Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering will provide you with specialised education and, at the same time, a good general education in engineering. This will give you versatility and a capacity to adapt to various types of work and you will therefore have many job-placement options:

  • In engineering and consulting firms.
  • In companies in the electrical sector.
  • In renewable-energy companies.
  • In energy-services companies.
  • In industry in general.
  • In services.
  • In the Administration.
  • In education.
  • In technology research and transfer.
  • Working as a freelance engineer.
  • Creating your own company.

Recent employability surveys indicate that graduates in electrical engineering quickly find work, even before they finish their studies, and that such work is linked to what they have studied. You can get an idea of your many professional options by looking at the careers services for the various engineers’ associations, for example enginyersgi.cat .

Continue studying

The speciality content of the Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering and the Bachelor's degree in Automation and Industrial Electronics Engineering relate to industrial electronics, automation and electricity. What varies is the proportion of these contents. This close relationship will allow you to also obtain a Bachelor's degree in Automation and Industrial Electronics Engineering in just one additional academic year. If you are already certain from the start that you wish to study the two bachelor's degrees, you can enrol simultaneously for the Dual bachelor's degree in Engineering in Automation and Industrial Electronics / Electrical Engineering.

Once you complete your Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering, you will also be able to study the Master in Industrial Engineering at the University of Girona, the only official master's degree that qualifies its holder to enter the regulated profession of industrial engineering.

In addition, the Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering provides access to other technology and science master’s degrees. The postgraduate degrees that the University of Girona offers include some with a highly practical profile, focused on labour market needs and also on research, which you will be able to access the doctorate in Technology through.

Other specialisation courses and postgraduate activities are available through the University of Girona Foundation: Innovation and Training, whose main objective is to fulfil the needs of higher level lifelong learning in all fields of knowledge.

All the subjects making up the Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering have a practical aspect which carries very considerable weight for the studies and for facilitating incorporation into professional life. Practical classes are held in small groups and in modern laboratories adapted to the current requirements.

Businesses play a large role at the Polytechnic School. As an electrical engineering student, you will be able to take up work placements through work placements. You will be able to choose between the more than 450 options that are proposed in each academic year.

Bachelor's thesis

During the final year, you will complete a bachelor's thesis to show the knowledge you have acquired during the degree. The bachelor's thesis is an engineering project on the subject you choose and which you will carry out under the supervision of a lecturer. If you wish, you can complete this in a company or research group.

The business association that supports the Polytechnic School and professional associations of engineers award prizes every year to the best theses.

Mobility

The Polytechnic School (PS) maintains relations with universities from all over the world. There are several mobility and exchange programmes that enable you to make stays abroad for studying subjects, drafting bachelor's theses or broadening studies: Erasmus, Erasmus+, Erasmus Mundus, Socrates, IAESTE, SICUE-Sèneca, Balsells scholarships, Josep Maria Ginés i Pous scholarship.
