Accessibility


The Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya · BarcelonaTech (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.


This website has been generated with Genweb UPC v3 (open in new window), a tool that allows to the creation and management of web pages according to the UPC institutional style guide.


Genweb UPC v3 (open in new window) is a project co-authored by the Communication Service  of UPC and UPCnet (open in new window) developed with the Open Source Content Management System Plone (open in new window). This site has been designed to be completely accessible and usable, working in accordance with the W3C accessibility guidelines.
