125th Euro Inf Label for Degree Programmes in the Field of Informatics / Computer Science awarded by ASIIN
At its September session 2014 the Accreditation Commission for Degree Programmes of ASIIN (one of the core team partners of the European e-Leadership Initiative (www.eskills-guide.eu) awarded its 125th Euro Inf Label for Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes in the field of Informatics/Computer Science. In total, more than 170 Euro-Inf Label have been granted to study programmes in Europe and abroad.
ASIIN is the one of three European agencies and the only German accreditation agency being authorized by the European Quality Assurance Network for Informatics Education (EQANIE) to award the Euro-Inf quality label. In its monitoring procedure, which is very much focused on the quality of discipline specific aspects of respective study programmes, the ASIIN expert panels assess whether these programmes meet pre-defined subject-specific criteria (so-called SSC) in the fields of Informatics/Computer Science, and thereby the Euro-Inf Framework Standards and Criteria issued by EQANIE.
The Euro-Inf label attracts growing attention internationally, a fact which was addressed at an event on 13 October 2014 in Wroclaw, Poland (for more details see: www.informatics-europe.org/ecss/ecss-2014.html).
