International Programme Review, Electrical Engineering. [Report of the] IPR-EE Committee.
Vroeijenstijn, A. I.; And Others
This report presents details from an examination of the curricula and diplomas of the Electrical Engineering departments of several major European technical universities (in the Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, and Belgium). The examination, a process involving department representatives of the various schools who came together to evaluate, compare, and comment on each others programs via the study of written material and site visits, was designed to achieve a common understanding and recognition of the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering degree. Report topics include (1) the procedures for the international program review; (2) the consensus on the minimum requirements, program goals, characteristics, and content of the electrical engineering program; (3) the necessary student skills, industrial training, thesis, and examinations for participation in the program; and (4) a review of student selection, level of study burden, and course completion rates. Also covered are the minimum requirements of the faculties, staff, and facilities as well as graduate quality assessment. The report further contains the faculty reports obtained from each of the nine participating universities. Appendices include course descriptions and the questionnaire and checklist used for the review. (GLR)
