Accreditation BSc Computer Science

The German Accreditation Council has accredited our Computer Science BSc program on its meeting on September 29th, 2020. The accreditation is valid for the period from October 1st, 2020 to September 30th, 2028. Obtaining program accreditation is an intense process, a huge amount of documentation has to be produced and a group of independent evaluators visit the university to talk with leadership and administration, faculty and students. The process took about two years, and it did consume quite some resources. Is the result worth the time and money invested? This is a complex question. I believe that our Computer Science program improved by going through this (at times painful) process and we have to see to what extend our investment in much more precisely defined program handbooks and more effective quality management processes pays off in the future.
