Monitoring Programme Profile: our study programme’s technical and applied component, and the instrumental-analytical learning pathway need permanent consideration and investment.
Proper balance is needed between implementing interim assessment and active teaching methods, and the workload this entails.
We need to ensure that sufficient Master’s dissertation topics can be executed in collaboration with the industry or the professional field. Considering its problem-solving and hands-on character, this type of Master’s dissertation proves especially valuable in keeping abreast of developments in the chemical industry.
Internationalization remains a matter of concern, as organizing international mobility in a one-year Master’s programme is no easy matter. Nevertheless, we keep looking into new bilateral Erasmus agreements. In addition, the possibility of taking a work placement and/or Master’s dissertation abroad deserves further promotion.
As stipulated in the quality improvement plan, the study programme in liaison with the faculty and the Education Department, is set to eliminate the weaknesses within a reasonable time frame. The study programme delivers regular progress reports to the Education Quality Board.
This study programme is accredited by the Dutch-Flemish Accreditation Organization (Dutch: NVAO). Accreditation was extended following the positive outcome of the institutional review in 2017. Programme quality was validated by a quality review, i.e. a screening of the Education Monitor by the Education Quality Board. The Quality Assurance Resolution (in Dutch) can be found here.
