The Specialization in Ergonomics, of the Universidad Católica de Manizales, is the answer to the need to train professional experts in the transformation of work and social environments in the regional and national context, to improve the welfare and quality of life of communities.

Aware of the needs of the sector, UCM proposes this Specialization with the objective of responding to the challenges and requirements of diverse populations and, specifically, to serve the population with disabilities. To achieve this objective, universal design, an academic component of the program, is a fundamental aspect of the pedagogy and inclusive culture project of the Specialization and the Universidad Católica de Manizales, with its Campus Capacitas; which allows the Institution to enhance its environment, improve the welfare and quality of life of communities and provide adequate knowledge in this area.

Why this program at UCM?

The Specialization in Ergonomics presents a series of differentiating attributes within the academic component associated with universal design and innovation as tools for work in this field, which are practical and inclusive following the guidelines of the Campus Capacitas policy. To strengthen the differentiating factor, a series of academic components are offered as complementary electives that guarantee the necessary flexibility to consolidate an interdisciplinary proposal that allows interaction with other programs. In addition, ergonomic evaluation in work environments is integrated through the portable ergonomic laboratory. The Specialization focuses on the distance education modality, adjusting to your needs, and giving you access and the possibility of using technology for efficient learning. This type of education reduces time barriers and offers synchronous and asynchronous possibilities for training, allowing independent or team work, bringing together in the same virtual space people who are geographically distant.
