The University of Alicante received this week three new International Stamps of Quality of the National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation (ANECA) that certify compliance with the highest standards with international European prestige for the degree in Chemistry, which is taught in the Faculty of Sciences, and for master’s degrees on Informatics Engineering e Chemical engineering, both belonging to the Higher Polytechnic School.
Although the award of these quality seals for the respective degrees of the University of Alicante was already known, the National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation held the formal act in which the accreditations were delivered in a ceremony held at the House of the Americas in Madrid and attended on behalf of the University of Alicante Francisco Torres, Vice-Rector for Studies, Quality and Languages, who was accompanied by Luis Gras, dean of the Faculty of Sciences, and for Miguel Angel Lozano, Deputy Director of Quality of the Higher Polytechnic School.
Francisco Torres highlights, in this regard, that “these are very relevant recognitions for the studies of the University of Alicante since certify compliance with the highest European quality standards and that the competences acquired and the learning results achieved satisfy the demands of academic and professional institutions linked to this field ”.
In the same sense, the Vice-Rector for Studies, Quality and Languages also considers relevant the fact that “professional associations or entities endorse this accreditation implies that From the professional sector, it is recognized that the competences acquired by students who have graduated from these degrees they are the most suitable for job performance in any European state “and he adds that” in addition, being an international standard, the academic mobility of students is facilitated, as well as professional mobility. ”
EUROLABEL for the degree in Chemistry
The European Chemistry Thematic Network Association (ECTN) is the body that grants the Eurobachelor International Quality Seal to the degree in Chemistry, which is taught at the Faculty of Sciences.
This seal is part of the International Quality Seals program of the National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation (ANECA), which was launched in October 2017 as an evolution of the old Acredita Plus program. To obtain a seal of this type, certification by an international accreditation body for Quality in Higher Studies (the ECTN, in this case) is necessary, in addition to the support of a national professional institution of recognized prestige (the Royal Spanish Society of Chemistry), and that of a national quality accreditation body recognized at European level, such as ANECA.
All three organisms are based on a external audit process that includes the visit of a panel of external evaluating experts. Only nine Spanish universities have obtained this EUROLABEL seal in Chemistry studies.
University of Alicante
With these three new International Quality Seals received by the degree in Chemistry and the masters in Computer Engineering and Chemical Engineering, the University of Alicante now adds a total of dTen international accreditations of this type, divided into six degrees and four master’s degrees.
Thus, the UA degrees that have the International Quality Seal are Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Sound and Image in Telecommunications, Computer Engineering, and Multimedia Engineering.
For their part, the UA masters with international accreditation are the university master’s degree in Port, Canals and Road Engineering; the university master’s degree in Telecommunication engineering, the university master’s degree in Chemical engineering, and the university master’s degree in Informatics Engineering.
International Quality Seals
The International Quality Seals (SIC) are a distinction, a recognition of quality, which is awarded to a university degree, master or doctorate. They are requested from the National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation (ANECA), although ANECA itself is not the one who grants them, but rather acts as a collaborating entity of the international organization that manages them. ANECA has developed a specific program (SIC), which until October 2017 was called ACREDITA + (Acredita plus), because obtaining one of these stamps was necessarily linked to the accreditation or re-accreditation of a degree.
