Master´s Program


Electrical Engineering Sciences

The technical applications of physical, chemical and biological phenomena are increasing at a fast pace. They have become true pillars for sustainable economic and social development. This occurs both in highly industrialized countries and in countries such as ours, which must also try to overcome the technological gap that separates us from scientifically and technically more advanced countries. Uruguay’s productive development of recent years requires a greater number of engineering professionals with specialized knowledge.

This context needs to contribute to the preparation of engineers with graduate training, at master's and PhD levels, committed to both advancement in science and technology as well as the implications on the economy and society.


Energy Management

Our Master of Science in Energy Management holds a common base with the Master of Science in IT Management from our School of Engineering. Both programs are inspired on the Master of Science in Engineering Management and Leadership of Santa Clara University (USA).

Its main goal is to develop an MSc program combining technical and management skills, in a specific human and economic context, thus successfully training management staff for organizations in energy-related areas, according to the vision and value proposition of UCU.

Graduate Program


Specialization in Food Technology

National agribusiness has traditionally been the main source of foreign currency, accounting for about 75% of exports. Most come specifically from the agri-food sector, where many products have had some of the highest growth rates in recent years. This strong dynamism is limited in the medium term by the restrictions in volume that a country of Uruguay’s size has. This evident limitation, however, is solved by improving the quality of food developed in the country by diversifying and adding value to these products.

The graduate specialization in food technology develops professionals with interdisciplinary training and broad and integrative criteria that can approach the processes of food transformation in a creative and innovative way in order to develop strategies adapted to the reality of the national industry, and create new opportunities in the sector.
