The UPC promotes training activities related to development, solidarity and global engineering. Based on a double approach: on the one hand, the incorporation of knowledge and transversal competences related to cooperation, development, sustainability and social commitment in the training of all students is fostered, and on the other hand specialized training is offered, for students and professionals who want to deepen in these topics.

For grade students, an approach to cooperation and development is offered: they can take courses that address the subject, or link the final project or master thesis to a cooperation project.

The CCD also facilitates the recognition of ECTS credits for students participateing in cooperation and volunteering activities.
