Professor Bohdan Macukow
President of KAUT

Accreditation Commission of Universities of Technology will be awarding European quality certificates.

After several years of efforts, the Accreditation Commission ofUniversities of Technology (KAUT) has obtained the right to confer along with its accreditations the European quality certificate EUR-ACE® Label.

What is EUR-ACE® Label? It is a type of accreditation created by European engineering organisations. The accreditation system was developed by the European Network for Engineering Accreditation (ENAEE). This network brings together many European organizations involved in training engineers,such as the British Engineering Council (EngC), the French Commission des Titres d' Ingegnieur (CTI), Federation Europeenne d' Associations Nationales d' Ingegneurs (FEANI), Societe Europeenne pour la Formation des Ingegneurs (SEFI) and The International Society for Engineering Education (IGIP). One of the main activities of the ENAEE network is the EUR-ACE accreditation program European Accredited Engineer label which involves granting a certificate to engineering degree programmes thus confirming their high quality as well as compliance with accepted European standards and principles.The accreditation system is closely linked with the Bologna process, and is based on the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance, which is "the Bible" the key text on the subject of quality and accreditation.
