Why should I study the Bachelor’s degree in Thermal Engineering?

  • It is the first dual Bachelor’s degree in Spain in Thermal Engineering.
  • It combines Mechanical Engineering traditional teaching system (years 1 and 2) with specific training in thermal engineering (year 3), and with a contract in companies of the thermal engineering sector where the training will be completed (year 4).
  • High employability both regionally and nationally. A clear example is the agrifood refrigeration industry - it represents 17% of the international GDP and 7% in Spain. Likewise, the downward trend in fossil fuels consumption predicts a major boost for the sector.
  • Bachelor's degree in line with the Smart Specialisation Strategy S4 of Navarre, which seeks to turn Navarre into a benchmark for sustainable economy through renewable energies production and resources preservation and exploitation.
  • Key sector to reach the goal set by the Horizon Europe Programme to reduce 55% of emissions through the improvement of cooling, heating, ventilation and air conditioning machines’ efficiency.
