Higher School of Computer Engineering

Our School started its activity in the academic year 1985/86. In the academic year 2005/06, the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) was adapted with the deployment of an academic calendar in accordance with the rest of Europe, as well as the implementation of a curriculum based on ECTS credits and new teaching methodologies. Our experience for more than 30 years has been very beneficial for the implementation in the 2010/11 academic year of the current Degree in Computer Engineering.

It is worth noting that, since 2016 our Degree has obtained the Euro-Inf accreditation issued by the European Quality Assurance Network for Informatics Education (EQANIE). This accreditation is internationally recognized and facilitates both academic and professional mobility, as it allows the identification of high- quality studies in Europe and beyond its borders. The Euro-Inf Framework Standards defines the learning outcomes as well as the criteria to be met by all programs statements for accreditation.
