The new ENAEE database of EUR-ACE labelled programmes

Denis McGrath - Email:


The ENAEE database has recently been re-designed and can be accessed at
Here you will find the engineering degree programmes at First Cycle (Bachelor) and Second Cycle (Master) which have been accredited by accreditation agencies in the European Higher Education Area. These agencies have applied accreditation criteria and procedures in line with the EUR-ACE Framework Standards and the ENAEE Standards and Guidelines for Accreditation Agencies. Thus they have been authorised by ENAEE to award the EUR-ACE Label to these programmes.

You may explore the database where you will find much information. When you click on Select and then click on a HEI name, you will open a page with further details about the relevant HEI and engineering degree programme. The ‘Search’ function allows you to search by words that are included in the ‘HEI name’ or ‘programme title’, however not by ‘HEI location’ (city).

If you have any queries about the database please do not hesitate to contact the ENAEE secretariat at

Authorised agencies wishing to add a newly authorised programme or to edit an existing programme should log in using their assigned user name and password.
