European Engineering Accreditation Agencies Sign EUR-ACE Accord

In November, thirteen European engineering accreditation agencies signed the Eur-Ace Accord, a Mutual Recognition Agreement in which the parties have agreed to make every reasonable effort to ensure that the bodies are responsible (i) for recognising engineering qualifications and/or (ii) for registering or licensing professional engineers to practice in its country or jurisdiction.

A copy of the agreement can be found on the official website of the European Network for Accreditation of Engineering Education (ENAEE): http://www.enaee.eu/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/MRA-agreement-A3-signed.pdf.  The ENAEE authorises accreditation and quality assurance agencies to award the EUR-ACE® (EURopean- ACcredited Engineer) label to their accredited engineering degree programs.
