Alicante. 23 January 2017.

The University of Alicante Polytechnic School was presented with two EURO-INF labels by which Acredita Plus Certification System recognises the high quality of the undergraduate degrees in Computer Engineering and Multimedia Engineering. These recognitions adheres to those awarded to the undergraduate degrees in Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering, and Sound and Image Engineering in Telecommunications, which received the EUR-ACE accreditation, also certified by Acredita Plus, last October.

Although the granting of these quality seals was requested in 2016 and became effective in 2017, the accreditation seals were presented to the award-wining institutions later on, covering a period of five years.

Such is the case of the two EURO-INF labels (European quality labels in the field of information technology) for the undergraduate degrees in Computer Engineering and Multimedia Engineering, which were presented at a ceremony held in the Auditorium of the Polytechnic University of Madrid Administration and Council building  last Friday.  The award ceremony was attended by Vice President for for Quality Standards and Educational Innovation Francisco Torres and Polytechnic School Deputy Director for Quality Standards and Educational Innovation Miguel Ángel Lozano, both representing the University of Alicante.

International Quality Labels in Spain (IQL) are awarded by the National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation of Spain (ANECA), as a member of the European Quality Assurance Network for Informatics Education (EQANIE). Successful institutions must meet the highest academic quality standards and provide a relevant connection with the professional world, assessed by the General Council of Spanish Professional Associations of Computer Engineers (CCII) and the General Council of Spanish Professional Associations of Computer Engineering Technologists (CONCITI) as collaborating entities.

EUR-ACE accreditations were awarded to our undergraduate in Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering, and,  Image Engineering in Telecommunications in October 2017. However, that was not the first time that the Polytechnic School was presented with quality labels for its undergraduate degrees. In fact, the undergraduate degree in Architectural Technology, taught in this School, was certified by UK-based Association of Building Engineers (ABE) in 2013.

 

New applications

These five international quality labels may be followed by another five in the coming years, since the University of Alicante has applied for recognition of the undergraduate degree in Chemistry and for the Master's degrees in Telecommunications; Roads, Channels and Ports Engineering, Chemical Engineering and, finally, Computer Engineering.
