Engineering and Arquitecture

General information

  • 240 ECTS
  • 4 years
  • The main objective of the Official Degree in Naval Radio-Electronic Engineering is to provide the basic knowledge and skills that Radio-Electronics Officers in the Merchant Navy should have to carry out their duties professionally. It also provides the basic knowledge and skills expected of a Second Class Radio-Electronics Officer in the Merchant Navy
  • The enormous technological development that society has experienced in recent decades and the high impact of electronics on all on-board systems, both electrical and control, makes it increasingly necessary and essential the figure of the Electrotechnical Officer, whose competences Professionals and qualification allows you to approach such systems with professional solvency. This qualification, acquired by the Electrotechnical Officer, not only enables him to carry out his activity on board, but also covers any other activity carried out on land in the industrial sector of naval electronics, directly related to maritime radio communications systems, radionavigation, electronic and electrical systems, rotating electrical machines, ship control and automation systems, as well as commercial management in companies engaged in marine electronics. In addition, there are other professional possibilities such as industrial and electronic maintenance, electrical installers, Authorized Control Organisms (OCA) dependent on Industry, electrician installer, and even these studies help to form, by their similarity, the operators of control towers of air traffic.
