  • a summary of the reform of Academic Degrees in german institutions of higher education
    The Journal of Higher Education, 2007
    Co-Authors: Sun Yu

    Abstract:

    The reform of Academic Degrees in German universities and academies,which began at the end of the 1990s,has reached the last phase of the Bologna process with the collision of traditional systems and requirements of the times.With the support of cultural and educational departments of the government and the business community,the reform has made marked success.So the new system of Academic Degrees has found more and more acceptance all over Germany.However,this emergence must overcome many difficulties before it is nationally and internationally thoroughly accepted.

  • A National Certification Programme for Academic Degrees in Cyber Security
    , 2018
    Co-Authors: Steven Furnell, Fred Piper, Chris Ensor

    Abstract:

    With a growing need for cyber security skills, there has been a notable increase in the number of Academic Degrees targeting this topic area, at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. However, with a widening and varied choice available to them, prospective students and employers require a means to identify Academic Degrees that offer appropriate and high-quality education in the subject area. This paper presents a case study of the establishment and operation of a certification programme for Academic Degrees in cyber security. It describes the means by which appropriate topic themes and subject areas for relevant Degrees were identified and defined, leading to a certification programme that addresses Degrees in general cyber security as well as notable specialisations including digital forensics and network security. The success of the programme is evidenced by 25 Degrees across 19 universities having been certified to date, and a continued response to new calls for certification.

  • impact of international accreditation in the recognition of Academic Degrees in the domestic and foreign labor market case study civil engineering program
    Innovaciones de Negocios, 2017
    Co-Authors: Jose Nicolas Barragan Codina, Daniel Bortoni Herrera

    Abstract:

    Abstract: In a globalized era it is not enough to have a professional qualification to ensure economic and professional success. The Academic background of professionals must be adequate to face challenges and solve problems of a globalized and dynamic world. Civil engineers face many complications when seeking an international career. There are many differences within the profession globally such as: resources, workforce, climate, language, culture, philosophies, regulations, etc. which raise the entry barriers to fully practice as a civil engineer. The International accreditations play a major role as the first evidence of the civil engineer technical proficiency. These assure the quality of the higher education curricula and add value to the human capital on an international context. Despite the fact that many Mexican Universities have Academic programs which have international accreditations, civil engineer graduates cannot easily work across borders. This paper describes the impact that international accreditation has for civil engineers when seeking an international career.

La formacion Academica de los profesionales debe ser adecuada para enfrentar los retos y resolver los problemas de un mundo globalizado y dinamico. Los ingenieros civiles se enfrentan a muchas complicaciones en la busqueda de una carrera profesional en el plano internacional. Hay muchas diferencias dentro de la profesion a nivel mundial, tales como: recursos, mano de obra, clima, idioma, cultura, filosofias, reglamentos, etc., que elevan las barreras de entrada para ejercer plenamente como ingeniero civil. Las acreditaciones internacionales desempenan un papel importante como la primera evidencia de la capacidad tecnica del ingeniero civil. Estos aseguran la calidad de los planes de estudios de ensenanza superior y agregan valor al capital humano en un contexto internacional. A pesar de que muchas universidades mexicanas tienen programas Academicos que cuentan con acreditaciones internacionales, los graduados de ingenieria civil no pueden trabajar facilmente a traves de las fronteras. En este trabajo se describe el impacto que la acreditacion internacional tiene para los ingenieros civiles en la busqueda de una carrera internacional.
