Degree in Electrical Engineering


The Electrical Engineering degree produces highly qualified professionals in the electrical engineering field in order to meet the future challenges of industry, especially in the power generation sector. Electrical engineers will have a dominant role in developing the energy policies needed to face the new social and economic world situation which demands energy-efficient models.


During the first year, students study basic engineering subjects such as Mathematics, Physics, Technical Drawing and Chemistry. In the second and third year, students are taught subjects common to this branch of industry such as Materials, Circuit theory, Thermodynamics and Heat Transmission, Fluid Mechanics, Material Resistance, Industrial Electronics, Automation, etc.

In the final year engineers are trained in the unique subjects of this degree, Specific Electrical Technology, including lines and networks, power plants and electronic power systems, as well as a range of optional subjects which will complete their profile. 


The Physics, Chemistry, Materials, Manufacturing and Mechanics, Electrical Technology and Electrical Machinery, Electronics, and Automation and Robotics laboratories let students apply in practice what they have learned in theory classes.

There are also specific laboratories for Electrical Engineering students such as the Electrical Lines and Networks lab where future engineers will test, model and simulate the behaviour of energy transport lines and their faults.


The teaching staff consists of highly qualified professionals, including doctors, physicists, chemists, mathematicians, and especially industrial engineers. Most of them work or have worked in some of the most important companies in the sector, combining teaching and professional experience, and can explain to students the real-life work of an Industrial Technical Engineer specialising in electrical engineering.

Unique Features

The most representative companies of the sector, such as Endesa Generation, S.L., Iberdrola, S.A., Unión Fenosa Ingeniería, S.A. and many more open their doors for Electrical Engineering students at Alfonso X el Sabio University to undertake tutored internships.

Students take part in University-Company Technical Symposia which let them see at first hand the problems they will have to face and the working methods they will have to use in their professional careers.

They will also visit electrical substations, operational control centres of electricity companies such as R.E.E or hydroelectric plants such as Bolarque, where they can see for themselves the work carried out in different facilities relating to the world of electrical engineering.

Employment Opportunities

As well as the traditional jobs in the field of electricity generation and transport or the calculation, design and project of medium and low voltage plants, new fields include the design, project and management of new forms of energy, dominated by advances in clean technologies.

Career openings also include directing operations in electricity plants and facilities, and carrying out studies on energy efficiency and environmental protection, electrical facilities, power plants and transformers.
