ASIIN e. V. is a founding member of the European Network for the Accreditation of Engineering Education (ENAEE) carried by central institutions and organisations dealing with the education of engineers at a European level.
The goal of ENAEE, founded in 2006, is the promotion of mobility of graduates from degree programmes in engineering through a mutual recognition of the accreditation decisions issued within a European accreditation association.
ENAEE is the body responsible for a subject-related quality seal for degree programmes in engineering, the EUR-ACE® label, which supports:
The Fédération Européenne d’Association Nationales d’Ingénieurs (FEANI) usually recognises the EUR-ACE® label as a prerequisite for the acceptance of a degree programme into the so-called FEANI Index.
As of 17 November 2006, ASIIN e. V. is authorised to award the EUR-ACE® label for engineering degree programmes in addition to the ASIIN seal, provided that the requirements are fulfilled.
Within the European Accredited Engineering Project (EUR-ACE®) and the succeeding EUR-ACE® Implementation Project funded by the European Commission, ASIIN e. V., together with various European partners, has formulated joint learning outcomes (“outcome standards”) for Bachelor’s and Master’s graduates of European engineering degree programmes and procedural standards. These are documented in the “EUR-ACE® Framework Standards for the Accreditation of Engineering Programmes” published in 2006.
Organisations from 11 European states and a number of international organisations involved in the establishment of comparable standards for engineering education at HEIs or the recognition of relevant degrees, were the partners in this project: among others, the Fédération Européenne d’Association Nationales d’Ingénieurs (FEANI), the Conference of European Schools for Advanced Engineering Education and Research (CESAER), the Société Européenne pour la formation d’Ingénieurs (SEFI), the European Network for Quality of Higher Engineering Education for Industry (ENQHEEI), and the European University Association (EUA).
In a meeting on 17 November 2006, the Administrative Council of ENAEE decided to assign the task of reviewing the maintenance of the standards first to six European accreditation agencies: besides ASIIN in Germany, the engineering accreditation agencies ECUK (United Kingdom), EI (Ireland), CTI (France), OE (Portugal) und RAEE (Russian Federation) have passed the admission examination.
