Competences and skills that will be acquired and learning results.
BASIC SKILLS CB7 That students know how to apply the knowledge acquired and their ability to solve problems in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their area of study. CB8 That students can integrate knowledge and face the complexity of formulating judgments based on information that, being incomplete or limited, includes reflections on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments. CB10 That students have the learning skills that allow them to continue studying in a way that will be largely self-directed or autonomous. GENERAL COMPETENCES CG8 Capacity for continuous, self-directed and autonomous learning. SPECIFIC COMPETENCES CE1 Ability to program in the development of digital systems, understanding the component and program as integral elements of a product. LEARNING RESULTS * Identify the main technological components in Internet of Energy. * Specify the interaction between storage and demand in a market environment. * Evaluate the necessary modifications to incorporate great penetration of electric vehicles. * Compose the operation structure of a network with a high percentage of renewable generation.
