MDH study programmes in Engineering and Technology Science have been evaluated

Oct 29, 2013 | Education

On 29 October, the Swedish Higher Education Authority (UKÄ) presented the quality evaluation of the study programmes in Engineering and Technology at Mälardalen University (MDH). Several programmes are questioned in terms of quality. MDH will now begin working with a survey of insufficiencies, and will get back to UKÄ with a list of remedial measures within a year.

The Swedish Higher Education Authority will evaluate all university study programmes which lead up to a degree in terms of quality by 2014.

The MDH study programmes in Product and Process Development have received the judgement high quality. Several study programmes in Engineering and Technology Science have received the judgement insufficient quality.

The UKÄ judgement of insufficient quality entails a questioning of the quality and the authorisation. MDH retains current exam-awarding powers and students who are enrolled in the study programmes in question are not impacted.

– MDH always aims for all study programmes to be high quality. Therefore it is crucial that we consider the assessment of the Swedish Higher Education Authority carefully. The report will be analysed, and based on this analysis a list of remedial measures will be drafted and submitted to the evaluation group at the Swedish Higher Education Authority for review, says pro-Vice-Chancellor Paul Pettersson.
