The Official Master in Automation and Remote Control for Management in Water and Energy Resources is an interuniversitary degree of several Spanish Universities, collaborating with teachers from eight Spanish Universities, two Research Centres and an enterprise. This Master consist of 60 ECTS credits. It is a bleanded learning Master. Subjects of the Master are varied and follow a defined subject matter. Firstly, learning about the more important automation systems for management of water and energy resources is developed. Subsequently the basis and several applications of automation and remote control (remote sensing, GIS, projects, among others) in management of water and energy are studied (hardware and software). Several optional subjects are divided in two itineraries: a) Automation in Water Resources and b) Management and use of Water and Energy. The students have to choose 18 ECTS credits among 36 optional credits. Finally, the last part is the development of a Final Master Degree Work. The objective of this communication is to present the proposal of this Master Degree for the future course 2012-2013.
