Challenges, perspectives and good practice of programme accreditation in engineering education
KU Leuven (Belgium), 18-19 October 2017
After more than 10 years of programme accreditation, ENAEE is facing new challenges: recent developments in Higher Education Quality Assurance, ongoing debate on institution vs. programme accreditation, common training principles for engineers, improvement of the value and recognition of EUR-ACE labels by students and employers, etc. The forum is intended to gather experiences and reflections from individuals actively engaged in EUR-ACE accreditations and to explore the questions that ENAEE will face in the 10 following years.
Much value is expected from interaction between the persons who are daily involved in the EUR-ACE activities: agency staff, boards members of ENAEE institutions and partners, experienced accreditors, stakeholders… The Forum will – besides plenary presentations and discussions – comprise parallel workshops and break-out sessions, with the final objective of drafting an agenda for ENAEE orientation in the following years.
