Course description

Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2021-22

In this course the student will deepen into real projects falling in fields that are beyond the core knowledge acquired in conventional subjects of the degree, with a significant demand in the society of today and demonstrating a multi-disciplinary component. Different skills and techniques in these particular fields will be acquired enabling the future graduates to properly document the projects, both technically and formally. They will address the fields of solar photovoltaic generation, electronic security and particularly, the data processing centers. The teaching methodology will be based on a practical teamwork.

Basic Transversal Competences

  • CT2 : Students should know how to apply their knowledge to their job or vocation in a professional manner and should possess those skills that are usually reflected when preparing and defending arguments and solving problems in their field of study.
  • CT3 : Students should have the ability to gather and interpret relevant data (normally within their field of study) to give opinions that include a reflection on important, social, scientific, ethical matters, etc.
  • CT4 : Students should be able to transmit information, ideas, problems and solutions to both specialist and non-specialist audiences.
  • CT5 : Students should have developed the necessary learning skills to take on later studies with a high level of autonomy.


Specific Competences: >> Competences Common to the Telecommunications Branch

  • C11 : Capacity to use different sources of energy, especially solar photovoltaic and thermal, as well as the fundamentals of electrotechnics and power electronics.
  • C3 : Capacity to use computer tools to find bibliographic resources and information related to telecommunications and electronics.
  • C6 : Capacity to conceive, deploy, organise and manage telecommunications networks, systems, services and infrastructures in residential (home, urban and digital communities), business and institutional contexts, as well as understanding their economic and social impact.


Specific Competences: >> Competences Specific to Sound and Image

  • E3 : Capacity to carry out projects for premises and facilities intended for producing and recording audio and video signals.
