The overall objective of the Doctorado en "Ingeniería de Sistemas Electrónicos" (DSE) program is to provide quality training to educate researchers and professionals to a high capacity and with competence in their areas of R&D at an international level, and therefore achieve the successful integration of our University into the European Higher Education Area.

To be more specific, the following is pursued:


  1. Provide the student with an overview of the state of art of new technologies that are relevant to their chosen field of specialization.
  2. Provide a specific and methodological base to carry out research and development activities in the area of electronics, with applications in different fields such as optical communications, cellular services, Home automation, or Bioengineering, among others.
  3. Facilitate the drawing up of a PhD Thesis with an international prospect, making contact with and encouraging visits to research groups at other European centers with whom cooperation is being maintained through numerous R&D&I projects, and where teachers participate in the Program.


The integration of faculty members and collaborators from other national and European centres, linked to the Department's experience in teaching PhD programs and intensive research, are guarantees that support the achievement of the desired objectives.

As regsards attracting prospects for graduates, although their natural area of origin will be that of Telecommunications Engineering, the wide range of technologies and the strategic objective raised, opens up the program to other degrees which are either complementary to the development of some of the technologies involved, or may serve as a reconversion towards applied areas of future interest. In particular, it is hoped that students from faculties such as Physics or Chemistry will be incorporated as well as those from the School of Electronic Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Materials Engineering, IT and other areas of engineering.


General objectives of the PhD Program


Number of the Objective

Description of the objective

Obj. 1.

Train the student in critical analysis, the design, the implementation, the integration and the evaluation of systems, circuits or advanced devices by applying research tools and techniques on the state of the art:

New optoelectronic, microsensor or nanotechnological devices;

New electronic and architectural systems for digital processing, systems on a chip, etc.

Multi-modal interaction systems between universally accessible people and machines;

Advanced embedded systems based on incomplete specifications or with a high degree of uncertainty;

Automatic systems to aid medical diagnosis (with a multidisciplinary interaction between engineering and biology);

Obj. 2.

Train the student in the application of advanced methodology, tools and techniques in management, planning, decision making and the control of highly complex projects in new application environments, with suitable technical, economic and social criteria.

Obj. 3.

That the student is able to carry out an original research process with seriousness and academic integrity, constructing new hypotheses and models and apply them to the resolution of problems in order to advance the state of the art in electronic systems for intelligent environments as well as participating in R&D&I projects in which he/she will interact with expert researchers both in their area of knowledge and in other areas, in multidisciplinary research teams.

Obj. 4

That the student is able to draw up scientific and technical research reports and articles and present their work, results and conclusions in public before national and international experts, both in English and Spanish.

Obj. 5

Develop in the student the capacity to learn and document autonomously so as to permit their continuous training throughout their research career.
