Diversity: our programme would benefit from a more diverse student intake, but we realize that this, in turn, depends on the student intake in the programme years, from which we recruit. To that purpose, the programme actively contributes to the implementation of the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture’s diversity action plan.
Internationalization: the Master’s programme is English-taught but scarcely attracts good international students. Conversely, very few local students complete part of their curriculum abroad.
Campus Commutes: students are right to point out their frequent commutes between Campus Boekentoren (Plateaustraat) and Campus Zwijnaarde. We regret this and are actively looking for a solution so that education activities can be centralized at one single campus.
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.
