Máster Internacional en Energía, Agroecología y Territorio

El agotamiento de los combustibles fósiles, el crecimiento de las concentraciones de CO2 en la atmósfera, la producción de alimentos y la gestión sustentable del territorio, son problemas cada vez más presentes en las agendas locales y regionales. Se plantean desde la necesidad de asegurar  la calidad de vida de las personas, la seguridad alimentaria y la seguridad energética, a la vez que se preserva la calidad de la biodiversidad, el clima, el agua, los recursos, y en general los ecosistemas que sirven de soporte a la vida. Es por ello que cada vez son requeridos más conocimientos, ideas y propuestas orientadas hacia formas más sostenibles de organización de la sociedad, los sistemas productivos, y el abastecimiento energético.

El Máster Internacional en Energía, Agroecología y Territorio (Tríptico) ofrece una formación novedosa, actual y propositiva, que, desde la perspectiva del nuevo paradigma de la sostenibilidad, busca la especialización de los/as estudiantes y profesionales en estos ámbitos.

Está promovido por una extensa red de universidades y centros de investigación, en Europa y Latinoamérica,  que garantiza unos estudios de calidad, centrados en los avances tecnológicos, los conocimientos y las estrategias más innovadoras. Las instituciones participantes en la red internacional, son: la Cátedra UNESCO de Sostenibilidad de la Universidad Politécnica de Catalunya, la Universitat de Lleida (UdL) y el Institut de Recerca i Tecnologies Agroalimentaries (IRTA), en España; la Universidade do Estado de Bahia (UNEB) y la Universidade Federal da Bahia (UFBA), en Brasil; la Universidad Católica Nuestra Señora de la Asunción (UCA), en Paraguay; la Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Nicaragua, (UNAN – Managua), en Nicaragua, el Bradford Centre for Sustainable Environments (BCSE), en UK;  el Centro Internacional del Agua, Universidad del Cauca, en Colombia; y el Colegio de Postgraduados de Puebla (COLPUE), en México.

Para conseguir esta especialización, el programa formativo se compone de un conjunto de contenidos, agrupados en asignaturas comunes y optativas, configurando cuatro líneas de especialización:

  • Línea de Energías Renovables,
  • Línea de Eficiencia y Gestión de la Energía
  • Línea de Agroecología y
  • Línea de Gestión del Agua y el Territorio

La elección de la especialización queda definida por el alumno en el proceso de matrícula.
