It is responsibility of the Methodological Commission of AC ZSVTS to create and develop efficient methodology of EUR ACE accreditation applicable to HEIs in Slovakia and compliant with the rules set by ENAEE.

The current methodology is based on the following activities:

  • Study of the managing documentation related to the study program such as: HEI directives and procedures, study plans, state accreditation documentation, and other pertinent documents.
  • Review of the records and data such as: study reports, other relevant reports related to the study program, minutes of the management meetings, relevant correspondence.
  • Seeing and inspecting the facilities, equipment, and material resources of HEI.
  • Interviews with teaching staff, students, and administrative staff.

The methodology of accreditation is implemented by documented procedures and forms used by the trained audit teams which are nominated and approved by the AC ZSVTS Methodological Commission and AC ZSVTS Chairman.

Usually the audit team consists of a Lead Auditor and at least three other members nominated by the AC ZSVTS Methodological Commission and confirmed by the AC ZSVTS Chairman. At least one member of the team is an expert in the specific engineering field. All four audit team members must pass the standard training of EUR-ACE® auditors according to the AC ZSVTS standards. The audit members are chosen to avoid any possible conflict of interests.
