Partnerships

 

The master's degree in Electrical Engineering (M2E) has international partnerships established by the IPT International Relations Office (GRI).

The IPT has the following bilateral agreements (ERASMUS): Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Universite de Limoges, Universite D'Evry Val d'Essonne, Università di Bologna, Bialystok University of Technology (Poland). In addition to these partnerships, M2E is developing direct contacts to establish protocols with other international institutions. Those contacts gave rise tothe presence of M2E in the "Red Iberoamericana de Generación Distribuida y Microrredes Eléctricas Inteligentes (RIGMEI)", funded by CYTED 2012.

Is referred also the collaboration of teaching staff from other institutions in the public examination boards (dissertations / projects / training periods) and the collaboration of M2E teachers with other higher education institutions, including UNL, UC and IST, among others, in supervising Master and PhD thesis, or juries of public examinations.

One of the strategic goals is to reinforce the integration of IPT in its regional and national environment. The creation of the Transfer Office of Technology and Knowledge in IPT (OTIC) performs the interface between the IPT and industry. Thus, we emphasize the existence of M2E teachers with strong activity in the field of Electronics, Control, and Energy. This relationship with the industry community and the public sector, is performed either through the LINE.IPT (Lab of Industrial Innovation and Enterprise), or through national and international projects, on which teachers of M2E take part (e.g. projects with Thales Alenia Space); or even on the scope of the course Project or Training Period.
