Brief description of the Doctorate Programme in Sustainable and Energy Engineering

Sustainable and Energy Engineering is currently becoming of crucial importance in all socio-economic sectors of our society and has become a geo-strategic factor. In this context, the need for specialists and researchers trained in R + D + I tasks in the energy field is increasing. In fact, the research and development of new technologies, materials, products and techniques aimed at the exploitation and efficient use of energy resources and energy are key factors in guaranteeing the future sustainable development of society and improving current living standards. Increasingly demanding requirements for sustainability and conservation of the environment make it necessary to promote studies and research projects for the optimization and efficiency of energy generation, transportation, distribution and consumption processes in all sectors of the society.

This Doctoral Programme (PhD degree) is framed within this context, whose main objective is the advanced training in methodologies and research activities in the field of Sustainable and Energy Engineering, through the completion of a doctoral thesis focused on one of its many scientific facets -technological, in particular those that correspond to its lines of research. In particular, advanced and multidisciplinary scientific and technical training is offered, according to what the labour market demands, oriented to research and contribute knowledge in the development of new technologies, materials, products and techniques that allow the efficient and rational use of the Energy in its various facets, from generation to final use, and in different sectors (industrial, building, construction, domestic, transportation, electrical, etc.). Among other competences, acquired through the training activities and the development of the doctoral thesis, it is intended the doctoral students to be able to conceive, design and implement original research of quality, rigorous and methodical, and to make some contribution in the field of Sustainable and Energy Engineering that broadens the frontiers of knowledge and deserves its publication and recognition by the scientific community and society both nationally and internationally, and finally, achieve adequate training in R + D + I that favours its incorporation into the labour market in companies of the field of Sustainable and Energy Engineering.


Research Lines

The Doctoral Programme have two research lines:

  • 8215L1: Research Line in Applied Technologies for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

Brief description: Research line focused on the design, modeling, development and evaluation of thermal, electrical, electronic and control technological solutions for saving and improving energy efficiency in various sectors of society (industrial, building, domestic, electrical, etc.) and for its application in the generation and efficient consumption of electric and / or thermal energy from renewable energies.

The research groups that participate in this research line are the following:

  1. TEP023 – Electrical Technologies for Sustainable and Renewable Energy (TESYR): http://tep023.uca.es. Leader: Luis M. Fernández Ramírez (luis.fernandez@uca.es).
  2. TEP221 – Thermal engineering (IITER): http://tep221.uca.es/. Leader: Ismael Rodríguez Maestre (ismael.rodriguez@uca.es).
  3. TIC168 – Computational lnstrumentation and Industrial Electronics (ICEI): http://tic168.uca.es. Leader: Juan José González de la Rosa (juanjose.delarosa@uca.es).
  • 8215L2: Research Line in Energy Technologies and Materials Applied to Sustainable Engineering and Industrial Ecology

Brief description: It focuses on the application of intelligent techniques in the design, modeling, development and evaluation of new technological solutions to solve problems in the industrial, environmental, materials and / or logistics and transport sectors related to energy, sustainable engineering or Industrial ecology. On the other hand, it also focused on the research of new materials and nanotechnology to produce innovative products for the energy industry, photovoltaic devices and solar collectors of high efficiency and the use of industrial waste, construction and / or demolition for the manufacture of concrete.

The research groups that participate in this research line are the following:

  1. TEP024 – Intelligent Modelling of Systems (MIS): http://tep024.uca.es. Leader: Ignacio Turias Domínguez (ignacio.turias@uca.es).
  2. TEP946 – Materials and Nanotechnology for Innovation: http://mse.com.es. Contact: David Sales Lérida (david.sales@uca.es).
  3. RNM920 – Energy Efficiency in Sea Transporthttp://rnm920.uca.es/. Leader: Juan Moreno Gutiérrez (juan.moreno@uca.es).
  4. TEP951 – Use of Industrial, Construction and / or Demolition Waste for the Manufacture of Structural and Non-Structural Concrete  (ARHENE): http://tep951.uca.es/. Leader: Mª Dolores Rubio Cintas (mariadolores.rubio@uca.es).
  5. Research in technologies, materials and tests of photovoltaic systems and solar concentration. Contact: Juan María González Leal (juanmaria.gonzalez@uca.es).

Who is it aimed at?

The Doctoral Programme in Sustainable and Energy Engineering by the University of Cadiz is specially designed for PhD students who have obtained Masters’s degree in Engineering and Architecture and the branch of Sciences (eg, Master in Industrial Engineering, Master in Engineering of Roads, Channels and Ports, Master in Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency, Master of Research in Systems Engineering and Computing, etc.), without prejudice to other Master’s degrees in Engineering whose suitability and opportunity should be analyzed by the Academic Commission Of the Doctoral Programme.
