Energy Systems

Transporting and distributing electrical, chemical and thermal energy over long distances and in a capillary way are fundamental elements for the accessible, rational and economical use of energy. Energy systems are and will remain the most strategic infrastructures of any country. In this respect, this orientation focuses on understanding energy systems planning, operation and control.
