Renewable Energy Engineering

About the Career

One of the wonders of nature is energy. Extracting it, processing it and transporting it to where it is needed represents the most important factor in the evolution and technical, economic and social development of a country.

Energy Systems Engineering is a unique program in Central America. We apply participatory methodology where the student has a direct link to the different generation sources in the following areas: mechanical, electrical and thermal, which allows them to understand how the energy world works, from raw material extraction, production, transportation and sale.

This program aims at the training of professionals of high technological level creating the productive bases that allow the development in the fields of exploitation, distribution, transportation and design of systems of generation of energy.

Dare to know and change the world around you by implementing sustainable energy development models and do not limit yourself to just turning on the switch in your house.

Graduate Profile

The graduate of Renewable Energy Engineering will have the capacity to evaluate the energy potential of a renewable and/or non-renewable resource, based on technical, economic, environmental and social criteria.

The high level of knowledge will allow you to develop and offer solutions in all areas of energy generation: electrical, mechanical and thermal. Being able to select, install and maintain power generation plants, electric motors, thermal and hydraulic tube-machines.

With advanced technological knowledge on industrial processes instrumentation controls, air conditioning and refrigeration systems; you will be able to participate in design projects, installation and maintenance of industrial automation systems.

Methodology

Each class is planned so that the theoretical and practical contents that motivate the interaction between the teacher and the students can be developed.

The methodology proposed, motivates the participation of students in an exchange of ideas, knowledge and perspectives. It also combines several complementary learning methods and strategies such as use of highly equipped laboratories, expert talks, participation in scientific fairs, preparation of real projects, motivation for self-learning and carrying out conferences, among others.

This in order to enhance knowledge and thus generate in the student better criteria, experiences, perspectives and knowledge that lead him to a training as complete and comprehensive as possible.
