MDH's Bachelor's degrees in Network Engineering and in Building Engineering maintain high quality

Mar 23, 2015 | Education

When the Swedish Higher Education Authority (UKÄ) previously evaluated MDH’s Bachelor's degree in Network Engineering and the Bachelor's degree in Building Engineering the assessment of deficient quality was given. Since then MDH has carried out several measures for improvement. Now UKÄ has carried out a follow-up and gives degree programmes the assessment of high quality.

At UKÄ’s quality review of 364 technology and engineering programmes at all the country's higher education institutions (HEIs), 110 of them were given the assessment of deficient quality. Now UKÄ’s first follow-ups have been completed and of the 37 followed up so far all of them have earned the assessment of high quality, including MDH’s Bachelor's degree programmes in Network Engineering and in Building Engineering. Thus the degree-awarding powers for these programmes are no longer being questioned.

Since the assessment of deficient quality was given, MDH has made several improvement efforts to ensure good quality, and the University has submitted a report on these to UKÄ. So now on 18 March came the positive announcement that MDH’s Bachelor's degree in Network Engineering and in Building Engineering have received the assessment of high quality.

- There are a lot of colleagues who have been working hard to ensure this positive news. This gives us confirmation that together we are making sure that MDH offers our students high quality education, which is always our aim, says Vice-Chancellor Karin Röding.
