General policy statement

CESAER plans

  • to promote interaction among its associates and with those organisations or individuals, public and private, that may make substantial contributions to high-level engineering education in Europe and academic research, especially in its application to industry and services
  • to develop further with industry innovative patterns for co-operation, and to disseminate the social and industrial benefits of education and research and development provided by universities
  • to support and to disseminate the idea that society needs advanced engineering education connected with research and technological development and that therefore appropriate support has to be given to such education
  • to further explain how research-oriented engineering institutions are key factors in the development of engineering research and innovative technology that lead to new services and products
  • to provide the European Union and national governments with guidance and feedback on how to develop an efficient European system for engineering education and research
  • to set a profile picture of engineering graduates from different European countries and from a variety of institutions providing education in the field of engineering for the benefit of students and employers
  • to define indicative standard requirements for resources and for assessing innovative management systems and educational models
  • to promote cross-European and international-oriented academic and professional recognition and quality assessment
  • to foster a European dimension in education through cross-European engineering curricula, course content and academic mobility
  • to aim for implementation of the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) throughout its membership and to promote the exchangeability of study programmes and the compatibility of academic calendars
  • to emphasise the importance of languages in engineering education
  • to facilitate networking in Research and Development, postgraduate and continuing education amongst its members
  • to promote the development of continuing education
  • to disseminate best practices and to promote benchmarking
  • to support its member institutions in their drive for excellence.
