EUR-ACE® Label (EURopean ACcredited Engineer)
EUR-ACE® Label (EURopean ACcredited Engineer) is an engineering profession accreditation that assesses the quality of technical study programs. It is closely linked to the Bologna process and is based on standards and guidelines for quality assurance in the European Higher Education Area. It is awarded by the ENAEE (the European Network for Accreditation of Engineering Education), a network of European institutions for the accreditation of technical fields of study. Currently, 15 institutions in Europe are authorised to award the EUR-ACE® Label to their accredited technical study programs. After several years of efforts, the Accreditation Committee of Technical Universities (KAUT) has also been authorised to award the EUR-ACE® Label together with its accreditation.
The EUR-ACE® Label is a recognised quality label in all European countries because it is based on a coherent framework of standards that measures the effectiveness of technical study programs. In countries with regulated engineering professions, programs with EUR-ACE® Label meet the requirements for the award of the titles of Registered or Chartered Engineer (CEng), and the European Federation of National Engineering Associations (FEANI) automatically recognizes programs with EUR-ACE® Label as eligible for the award of the title of European Engineer (Eur Ing).
Lodz University of Technology offers education in 9 fields of study which have been awardedthe EUR-ACE® Label: Mechanics and Mechanical Engineering, Materials Engineering, Automation and Robot Control, Biotechnology, Computer Science, Technical Physics, Architecture, Building and Construction, Management and Production Engineering.
