Quality policy and commitment

Polytechnic School

Quality throughout the centre

The Polytechnic School is making a big effort to continually improve the quality of its studies. Work is currently being done on certification for a new internal quality management system (SIGQ) which will replace the current one and is better suited to the processes implemented at the School. This improvement is ascertained through the satisfaction of all those people who take part in the School’s studies, which is shown in the degree Follow-Up and of Accreditation reports.

The accreditation processes have been successfully completed for all the degrees assessed. An Internal Accreditation Committee (CAI), coordinated by the centre’s quality manager, was created for each process. The most recent accreditations carried out are:

2016: Process of accreditation of the degrees:

  • Master of Industrial Engineering
  • Master's degree in food biotechnology
  • Master in Smart Cities
