It's useful to know

This double degree is offered on the basis that both degrees share a significant proportion of credits. Furthermore, a convergence of these technical studies is visible in the context of the many careers to which the degrees can lead. This is the consequence of the changes in electricity distribution companies. The expansion of smart grids demonstrates the technological transformation of the sector and has caused both streams of engineering to develop more than ever to the benefit of the professionals involved.

Beyond the smart grids, there are other fields causing this change, such as micro-generation, renewable energy, the roll-out of electrical cars and energy resource management, energetic resources, not to mention technological challenges.

To obtain the double degree, the student must successfully pass five academic years with an average of 60 ECTS credits per year. In the final year, a bachelor's thesis has to be prepared in which the knowledge from the two courses should be demonstrated, or the student can carry out a thesis for each degree.

The ECTS credits are divided as follows:

  • 147 ECTS credits from compulsory subjects common to the two courses
  • 15 ECTS credits from Electronic Engineering (EE) compulsory subjects that are optional to Automatic and Industrial Electronic Engineering (AIEE)
  • 4 ECTS credits from AIEE compulsory subjects that are optional to EE
  • 10 ECTS credits from subjects that are optional to both degrees
  • 33 ECTS credits from other EE compulsory subjects
  • 39 ECTS credits from other AIEE compulsory subjects
  • 15 ECTS credits from other EE compulsory subjects
  • 10 ECTS credits from other AIEE optional subjects
  • 30 ECTS credits from bachelor's theses/thesis

Careers

The dual bachelor's degree Automation and Industrial Electronics Engineering / Electrical Engineering provides the student with specialised training on top of a solid general education in engineering. This offers a versatility and ability to adapt to different types of work, thus broadening the students job opportunities. The professional careers available after obtaining the double degree match the career paths offered by each individual degree. The complementary nature of the two engineer profiles provide greater job prospects because the double degree education fits into various professional profiles:

  • engineering and consultancy firms, whether industrial control and automation, industrial electronics or industrial robotics.
  • companies in the electrical sector
  • renewable energy companies
  • energy services companies
  • industry in general
  • services
  • Administration
  • education
  • research and technology transfer
  • practising as a freelance engineer
  • creating your own company

Recent studies on the job prospects show that holders of this double degree quickly find work, even before finishing their studies, and such work is related to their course. You can get an idea of your many professional options by looking at the careers services of the different engineers’ associations, for example enginyersgi.cat .

Continue studying

Upon finishing the Dual bachelor's degree Automation and Industrial Electronics Engineering / Electrical Engineering, the student can go on to study for a Master in Industrial Engineering, offered by the University of Girona, which is the only official master's degree that authorises the holder to enter the industrial engineer profession.

Moreover, other technology and science master's degrees are open to the successful student. The postgraduate degrees offered by the University of Girona are renowned for being practical and focused on the needs of the labour market, while also having a focus on research skills, with which you will be able to enter the Dr of Technology programme.

Placements

All subjects forming part of the dual bachelor's degree Automation and Industrial Electronics Engineering / Electrical Engineering have a practical aspect which is very important for the studies and the subsequent insertion into the labour market. Practical classes are carried out in small groups in modern laboratories that are equipped for current needs.

Businesses play a large role at the Polytechnic School. As an Dual bachelor's degree Automation and Industrial Electronics Engineering / Electrical Engineering student, you will be able to take up work placements from a number of companies. You will be able to choose between over 450 options available each year.

Bachelor's thesis

During the final year, you will have to write a bachelor's thesis on both Electrical Engineering and Automation and Industrial Electronics Engineering, in which you must demonstrate the expertise acquired through the two courses. The bachelor's thesis is an engineering project on a topic of the student’s choice. It is carried out under the supervision of a lecturer. If so desired, it can be conducted in a company or a research group.

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

Mobility

The Polytechnic School (PS) maintains relations with universities from all over the world. There are several mobility and exchange programmes that will allow you to study abroad, carry out the bachelor's thesis or expand your studies: Erasmus, Erasmus+, Erasmus Mundus, Socrates, IAESTE, SICUE-Séneca, Balsells scholarships, Josep Maria Ginés i Pous scholarships, etc.
