EUR-ACE Quality Label



FEUP is proud to be the first Portuguese higher education institution with all its Engineering courses recognised by ENAEE (European Network for Accreditation of Engineering Education) through the EUR-ACE Quality Label. In the meantime, the Integrated Masters have given way to new Masters in Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Informatics and Computing Engineering, Electrical and Computers Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Management, Environmental Engineering, Materials Engineering, Bioengineering and the Master in Mining and Geo-Environmental Engineering. This qualification placed FEUP in an unprecedented level in the field of higher education in Portugal, granting FEUP diplomas a greater European dimension and boosting the acceptance of FEUP engineers throughout Europe.

The EUR-ACE® framework and accreditation system is based on a set of standards that aim to recognise high quality engineering degree courses in Europe and abroad. In addition to the educational requirements, this system also incorporates the views and perspectives of key stakeholders, namely students, employers, higher education institutions, professional associations and accreditation agencies.

The EUR-ACE® accreditation system is internationally recognized, thus facilitating academic and professional mobility. The main benefits for students and engineering professionals are:

  • the guarantee that the course meets European and international standards and is recognised by employers in Europe;
  • simplification of applications to EUR-ACE® Master’s and Doctoral courses in other higher education institutions;
  • in countries where the engineering profession is regulated, EUR-ACE® labelled courses meet the educational requirements for becoming a registered or chartered engineer (the authorized agency in Portugal is the Ordem dos Engenheiros);
  • promotion of graduate mobility, in agreement with the EU directive on Recognition of Professional Qualification (Directive 2005/36/EC);
  • access to the "EUR ING Title", a European professional title attributed by ENGINEERS EUROPE, through the national member (Ordem dos Engenheiros, in Portugal)

Ordem dos Engenheiros is the Portuguese national agency duly authorized by ENAEE to issue the EUR-ACE quality label to Portuguese Higher Education Institutions.

The EUR-ACE® Quality Label embodies the beginning of a new accreditation cycle at European level, aimed at mutual accreditation of engineering courses with recognized demand criteria.
