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.
