Quality assurance process
The quality assurance process at the School of Engineering is linked to the overarching goals and strategies of JU and the School of Engineering, as well as to the JU quality assurance process and external demands.
A characteristic of successful quality assurance processes is the participation and engagement of staff and students. To allow for dialogue, several School of Engineering councils regularly convene and discuss quality assurance and quality development together with student representatives. These councils include the Research Council, the Doctoral Programmes Council, the Education Committees and the Pedagogical Development Group.
Collaboration with academia, industry and other societal partners is important to the School of Engineering. This explains why research and education leaders also participate in councils with external parties, as participation is a means of ensuring relevance of research and education.
The JU quality assurance process is similar for research and education. Research environment managers and programme managers establish quality reports and quality improvement reports on a yearly basis, documenting the continuous improvement work taking place. The different quality improvement reports are then aggregated at the School of Engineering level. In addition, cyclical quality reviews are conducted for the School of Engineering study programmes in accordance with the routines of the Board of Education and Research Education.
