Description

Due to improved legislation, accessibility requirements now exist in many countries which improve the quality of life for all citizens, particularly the elderly and those with special needs. This postgraduate course from UIC is an opportunity to discover the fact that "accessibility is not only a requirement for people with disabilities, but also benefits all citizens." It seeks to address accessibility from the beginning of the project, in an inconspicuous way and at little or no cost once it is incorporated into the original design solutions. Achieving standardised solutions which are comfortable and safe is also important. Also, if necessary, technical help and new technologies can be incorporated in order to improve the comfort and quality of the services provided to the public.The course is based on remote synchronous work sessions via a virtual platform on the Internet, which are both theoretical and practical in nature. These work sessions involve discussing the various types of material, as pre-defined in the programme. Case studies will be carried out, which will help to contextualize the concepts covered in each subject.
