Degree Program Evaluation

As part of the University’s quality assurance process, degree program evaluations are conducted every six years for all degree programs. Seven defined quality objectives serve as the benchmark for evaluation. The degree program evaluation replaces external program accreditation and builds on metrics from the degree programs, course evaluation results, student and graduate surveys, as well as the teaching conference reports.

Degree program evaluations are a key component of our quality management system for academics and teaching. This quality assurance instrument integrates an external perspective by including external assessors and, if necessary, representatives from the relevant Senate department, without having the procedure conducted by an external party.

The TU Berlin quality management procedure is:

based on data

  • Annual data sheet with metrics and survey data for teaching conferences in all degree programs
  • Data-based degree program report with evaluations from student statistics and questionnaires for evaluation procedures

dialog-oriented

formative

  • Quality assurance instruments build on one another
  • Quality assurance instruments enable continuous check-ups and, if necessary, correction of ongoing measures.
