The Euro-Inf Quality Label is awarded to degree programmes at Bachelor’s and Master’s level that comply with the Euro-Inf Framework Standards and Accreditation Criteria.
The objectives of the Euro-Inf Quality Label are
The quality of informatics degree programmes, according to EQANIE e. V., derives from a functioning qualification process, the interaction of its elements and the level of achievement of objectives – i.e. the attainment of the intended learning outcomes by the graduates of a programme.
Accreditation with EQANIE aims to review the logics and efficacy of a qualification process within a degree programme in the field of informatics. Central to the overall assessment is the effective attainment of the educational objectives set by the institution applying for the Euro-Inf Quality Label.
The basis for accreditation with EQANIE are the Euro-Inf Framework Standards and Accreditation Criteria in conjunction with the European guidelines (European Standards and Guidelines). The key element of the Euro-Inf Framework are its learning outcomes statements at Bachelor's and Master's level (p. 3-5).
The Euro-Inf learning outcomes statements were developed, tested and refined in several rounds in the context of the Euro-Inf Project 2006-2008. They reflect the expectations of the European labour market and required entrance qualifications for entering higher levels of studies in the field of informatics.
What are the benefits of the Euro-Inf Quality Label for the stakeholders?
The Euro-Inf system is internationally recognised and facilitates both academic and professional mobility.
