The main objective of this doctoral programme is to provide students with training to become highly qualified researchers in the field of technologies for nanosystems, bioengineering and energy. In the field of energy, the Automation and Industrial Electronics research group focuses on designing architectures for managing electrical energy generated by renewable sources, managing and efficiently distributing electrical energy in cars, and controlling and analysing the non-linear dynamics of commutated converters.

In the field of nanosystems, the Nanoelectronics and Photonic Systems research group provides training for researchers in the manufacture of photonic devices based on porous micro- and nanostructures and organic materials. It also deals with the design and modelling of nanoelectronic and photonic devices, high-frequency electronic systems, and organic solar cells. The Microsystems and Nanotechnologies for Chemical Analysis research group offers the specialisation in micro- and nanosystems for chemical and biological detection. In addition to applications of biological nanosensors, the training in the field of bioengineering includes signal processing in metabolomic environments, which is being studied by the Signal Processing for Omic Sciences research group.

Students who successfully complete the doctoral programme are prepared to work as researchers in research centres, universities and R&D departments of technology-based companies, carrying out educational work and basic research work and acting as leaders of research teams, projects and departments.
