Education and knowledge that make a difference

As future professionals, it is vital that engineering and industrial design graduates are able to take into account people's different conditions and abilities, and contribute to making the products, services and environments they develop accessible to as many as possible.

The knowledge and ability to understand people and their different life situations are important qualities that will enable engineers and designers to participate in society's aspirations for diversity. 

Certec's courses are strongly related to both people and technology. Rehabilitation engineering is based on human needs, wishes and dreams, which in turn can place high demands on technical solutions.

Certec offers courses to increase the knowledge and skills of those who work in group homes for people with developmental disabilities, in day activity centers, rehabilitation centers, psychiatric facilities, nursing homes, schools, as personal assistants and for relatives.
