One of the best Master’s programs in Energy in Spain according to the annual ranking of El Mundo


The Master ERMA – Master’s program in Renewable Energies and Environment from the Polytechnic University of Madrid is an applied engineering program taught in Spanish focus on project and process. For any renewable energy source we estimate the energy resource and select the optimum components and systems, evaluating his technical, economic, legal and environmental viability.

The Master ERMA consider all forms of renewable energy, energy efficiency and environmental impact assessment methodologies, using the tools, techniques and software from top companies in the renewable energy sector. Scholars from academia come together with professionals and scientifics from top companies and national world classs cientific institutions where our students undertake their internships.

The high-level of technical content, experimental case studies and learning methods of Master ERMA provides students with the knowledge, techniques and tools necessary to develop a successful career in several areas of renewable energy with a multidisciplinary approach.

The content of our Master´s Program is in line with The UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and can help to achieve the Goal of Affordable and Clean Energy (SDG7) and Climate Acction (SDG13), as well as the rest SDGs in relation with Energy for Sustainable Development.
