Applying for the EUR-ACE® label
The use of the EUR-ACE® label in addition to the Engineering Council logo is a further tool for universities to promote the status of their accredited engineering degree programmes, both within and beyond Europe.
Higher Education Institutions may decide to apply for the EUR-ACE® label for some or all of their eligible degree programmes. The EUR-ACE® label can be issued to any engineering degree programme accredited in the Chartered Engineer section by a licensed professional engineering institution since 2006.
Bachelors with Honours programmes that have been assessed as meeting in part or in full the academic requirements for CEng registration are eligible for the First Cycle label. MEng and MSc programmes will be awarded the Second Cycle label. Accreditation dates and sections can be checked using the Engineering Council’s Accredited Courses Database (ACAD). Labels cannot be backdated beyond the current accreditation period.
The European Network for the Accreditation of Engineering Education (ENAEE) charges a fee per programme, which lasts for the duration of the current accreditation period, up to a maximum of 5 years. In recognition of the broader range of programme titles available in the UK, ENAEE has agreed a special rate for the Engineering Council, for a limited period until the end of 2013.
A suite of up to ten programmes at the same level and with a similar content and titles can be awarded the label for a single fee of £150+VAT* plus £20+VAT* for each additional programme, up to a maximum of ten. (*VAT applicable at current rate)
EUR-ACE® labels are not currently awarded at Third Cycle/Doctoral level, although this is a possibility in the future.
