The Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) aims to provide the university community and society in general with a website whose design makes it accessible regardless of limitations imposed by the environment, the Internet connection or personal circumstances.
Royal Decree 1494/2007, of 12 November, establishes that the information available on the Internet pages of public administrations must be accessible to elderly and disabled persons, with the minimum level of accessibility required to meet priorities 1 and 2 of standard UNE 139803:2004. Public educational institutions, training institutes and universities, as well as private schools that are fully or partly funded by the public, are also obliged to conform to this standard.
The content of the website has been validated with A certification, based on WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative) recommendations. WAI is an international working group that belongs to W3C (World Wide Web Consortium), a body which seeks to ensure that no group experiences any form of access discrimination that could lead to social fractures in the virtual world.
The techniques used on the UPC site comply with WAI recommendations for XHTML 1.0 markup and CSS.
We continue working to maintain and improve the accessibility of all the pages on the site. If you notice any accessibility-related anomalies on any of its pages, please contact with webmastertsc.upc.edu.
