The Undergrauate's Degree in Aerospace Engineering has received the EUR-ACE ® (EURopean-ACcredited Engineer) Label, certifying this degree does fully meet the engineering professional requirements. The degree has been assessed according to a series of standards defined in terms of principles of quality, relevance, transparency, recognition and mobility referred to in the European Higher Education Area.
The Undergraduate’s Degree in Aerospace Engineering is being accredited with this international quality label for a six-year period, until April 2023, for all those students who completed their studies from 28 May 2014 onwards.
This label is granted by the renowned European Network for Accreditation of Engineering Education agency (ENAEE), through the National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation of Spain (ANECA as per its acronym in Spanish).
ENAEE or European Network for Accreditation of Engineering Education was founded in February 2006 with the following objectives:
ENAEE is the European organisation in charge of granting the authorisation to the accreditation agencies to award the EUR-ACE® label in the first and second cycles of accredited engineering programmes. The members of ENAEE are agencies and professional organisations interested in the education and training of engineering professionals.
EUR-ACE® system implementation began in 2007, with first labels awarding. Since then, ENAEE has accredited nearly 2,000 programmes in more than 20 countries.
EUR-ACE® system includes the main stakeholders' opinions and perspectives: students, higher education institutions, employers, professional organisations and accreditation bodies.
To ensure engineering education programmes educate graduates who can demonstrate these competencies, these programmes are subject to accreditation by their professional associations or other accreditation body that carry out the programme-based accreditation.
