Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering

Electricity is a type of energy that is easy to transport, control and transform into other types of energy. Electrical energy is today an irreplaceable energy vector and without it we could not imagine the world as it is.

Electrical engineering is the domain of electricity, from generation to transmission and distribution, industrial and household consumption and use. It is a dynamic technology that is developed thanks to the momentum provided by new technologies.

The need to move towards a sustainable society that brings together progress and respect for the environment stimulates research in the field of electrical energy. Because of current interest in electric mobility and renewable energies, the EPSEVG has chosen these two pathways to specialisation.


What can I learn by taking the bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering on the UPC Vilanova Campus?

Renewable Energies

Renewable Energies

Using energy with respect for the environment is necessary for sustainable development. The bachelor's degree studies the management and saving of electrical energy, renewable energy sources and photovoltaic and wind energy systems.

Electric Mobility

Electric Mobility

The introduction of electric mobility in current means of transport is a contemporary fact, and strong growth is expected in the near future. Specific knowledge of electric vehicles and engines is imparted.

Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0, also known as smart industry, is considered the fourth industrial revolution. It seeks to transform businesses into intelligent organisations to achieve the best business results.

Common access

Access to industrial engineering degrees at the UPC’s Vilanova i la Geltrú School of Engineering is via the same pre-enrolment process for the 200 places available, which are divided between the following degrees:

Choosing a degree

The first academic year is common to all of the degrees. Once students have passed it, they can apply for admission to the degrees they wish to take, in order of preference. The School assigns students a specialisation in view of their applications and their academic records at the School.

Students who have passed the first academic year on industrial engineering degrees at the EPSEVG may be admitted to the second academic year of the bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design and Product Development Engineering, depending on their academic records and the number of places available.

If the 18 credits of the same itinerary are exceeded, an accrediting diploma will be issued, upon request to the SIAE, through the Demana.


Tutorial action on each degree is conceived as a service for students in which tutors guide, inform and advise them on how the University works and how it is regulated.

Their main functions are listed below.

In the Tutorial Action Plan, each student on each degree is assigned a tutor from the group of tutors for the corresponding stage:

Tutors for the initial stage teach in the first half of the degree and tutors for the final stage teach in the second half of the degree.
