Graduates in Electrical Engineering are bound to work in the management of electric power systems, electric facilities and drives, and in the transport and distribution of electric power, which are areas that require graduates with specific training in this field. Such graduates must also fill positions in emerging sectors that have a growing impact on present-day society, such as electric traction and renewable energies, particularly the generation of electric power through wind and photovoltaic systems. These are areas that have expanded significantly in our country in recent years and that offer promising future perspectives.

Nowadays, the electricity sector requires a large number of graduates, which allows students with this degree to find work in the electricity sector within a year from graduation, and leads students from other specialties to end up working in this sector, too.
