Aims: The main aim of the doctoral programme in Electronic Engineering is the training of doctors in the research fields of the electronic engineering with the basic competencies listed in the Spanish Qualifications Framework for Higher Education (MECES), namely: systematic understanding of a field of study of legal sciences, and mastery of its skills and methods of research; ability to conceive, design or create, implement and adapt a substantial process of research and creation; ability to make a critical and assessment analysis, and synthesis of new and complex ideas, as well as communication with the academic and scientific community and society in general about their fields of knowledge; and and ability to promote, within academic and professional contexts, scientific, technological, social, artistic or cultural advance in a knowledge-based society. The main aim is the development and defence of a doctoral thesis in electronic engineering, in which process the doctoral student must provide an extensive professional training in various fields, especially those that require creativity and innovation. It shall provide skills to cope with contexts with little specific information, find the key questions that must be answered to solve a complex problem, design, create, develop and launch new and innovative projects in their field of knowledge, etc.

Description: Electronic engineering is by nature a cross-disciplinary field of knowledge. For example, we find electronic developments in areas as diverse as chemical engineering (development of sensor systems, process control), informatics engineering (communication of data, acquisition and processing systems), medicine (acquisition and image processing, diagnostic data processing), physical activity science (ergonomics, support systems for disabled, precision measuring systems), physical sciences (measurement equipment, data acquisition systems), etc. Multidisciplinary applications mean engineers need to know in depth subjects such as power electronics, digital electronics, signal processing and communications electronics. The Doctoral Programme in Electronic Engineering is designed following this idea, as a tool with which train doctors experts in the development of electronic systems and equipment able to successfully meet their work in diverse disciplines and carry out research in the field of electronics to improve them.
