BDMA has developed an internal quality evaluation of the overall programme at two different levels:
- Local evaluation: All courses of the programme at each partner university, including those specifically created for it, will be included in the nationally accredited degrees in computer science delivered by the partners. All partners have internal quality assurance systems for academic and research activities. Furthermore, according to national laws, the academic and research activities of all partners are under regular external evaluations undertaken by recognised agencies, all of which belong to European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education. The diploma-issuing capacity of all partners depends on such evaluations. This guarantees the quality of the academic and research activities surrounding BDMA.
- Internal Evaluation Committee: An Internal Evaluation Committee (IEC), composed of representatives of main partners and students, will ensure a continuous quality evaluation of the programme. Students will be requested to complete three types of questionnaires on an anonymous basis. For each course, a questionnaire will address the contents, learning objectives, instructors, course material, workload, examination and assessment, etc. At the end of a semester, at a given partner, a questionnaire will address the pedagogical aspects (course complementarity, relevance, etc.) and the logistical aspects (welcome, housing and administrative support, etc.). Finally, upon completion of the programme, a questionnaire for assessing the overall programme will address academic quality, social and cultural activities, services provided, mobility, employability opportunities, etc. The Local Programme Coordinator at each partner is responsible for the collection of these questionnaires, which will be implemented in a centralised platform available to all partners.
