Favourable report on the accreditation of three degree programmes from the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC)
They are the bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering; the bachelor's degree in Architectural Studies; and the interuniversity master's degree in Advanced Studies in Design-Barcelona (MBDesign), taught by the UPC in coordination with the University of Barcelona.
One of AQU Catalunya's many functions is the accreditation of university degree programmes, i.e. verification based on an external visit that the degree programme is being carried out as planned. This is a process that all official university degrees must go through within six years of their initial validation or last accreditation. For this reason, the bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering, which is taught at the Faculty of Computer Science of Barcelona and at Vilanova i la Geltrú School of Engineering; the bachelor's degree in Architectural Studies, which is taught at the Barcelona School of Architecture and at the El Vallès School of Architecture; and the master's degree in Advanced Studies in Design-Barcelona (MBDesign), which is taught at the Barcelona School of Architecture, at the Vilanova i la Geltrú School of Engineering, at the Terrassa School of Industrial, Aerospace and Audiovisual Engineering and at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Barcelona, have recently undergone the accreditation process.
The Specific Commission for Engineering and Architecture of the Institutional and Programme Review Commission issued favourable reports on the operation of the degree programmes, following external visits to demonstrate the proper functioning of these degrees.
The reports on the degrees can be found on the EUC Reports portal:

- Bachelor’s Degree in Architectural Studies
- Master's Degree in Advanced Studies in Design-Barcelona (MBDesign)

AQU Catalunya has sent these reports to the Spanish Universities Council, which will resolve the process with the corresponding accreditation. Once the accreditation process is complete, AQU Catalunya will publish the results and issue the quality label and certificate of accreditation for the degree programmes, which can be consulted on EUC Studies, the web portal with all the information on the quality of official university degree programmes offered in Catalonia.
