Awarding EUR-ACE® label

EUR-ACE® is the European quality label for engineering degree programmes at Bachelor and Master level.

Accredited engineering programmes

The EUR-ACE® label is a certificate awarded by an authorised agency to a HEI (Higher Education Institution) in respect of each engineering degree programme which it has accredited.

The EUR-ACE® label respects the great diversity of engineering education within the European Higher Education Area and has created a quality system for accredited engineering degree programmes that share common objectives and outlooks.

It encompasses all engineering disciplines and profiles, is internationally recognised and facilitates both academic and professional mobility.

How does awarding a EUR-ACE® label work?

Small EUR-ACE labelEngineering programmes that have been accredited by a EUR-ACE® authorised agency can be awarded the EUR-ACE® label.

The EUR-ACE® label gives international value and recognition to that engineering qualification, and is awarded to programmes which fulfil the programme outcome standards as specified in the Accreditation agencies must also satisfy these Standards in respect of their policies and procedures.

The EUR-ACE® label distinguishes only between First and Second cycle degrees. This means that graduates from EUR-ACE® labelled programmes can call themselves respectively either EUR-ACE® Bachelor or EUR-ACE® Master.

ENAEE (European Network for Engineering Accreditation) is the European body responsible for awarding authorisation to accreditation agencies to award the EUR-ACE® label at Bachelor and Master level to engineering programmes which they have accredited.
