Joint European Degree label in engIneering - Toward a European framework for engineering education
Research Project, 2023 – 2024

With JEDI, 17 HEI’s from 12 countries and 3 European Universities have joined to investigate and propose common criteria for a
European Label that would be delivered with Joint programs in technology and engineering. We share a strong conviction that the issuance of this label would be a first step toward the creation of a unified European Engineering Space. It would be beneficial for the HEI in terms of attractivity, reputation of HEIs, for student employability and ability to tackle global challenges, for employers, to have a better view of student’s competences and to develop their business at EU scale and beyond. The general objective of JEDI is to develop a prototype of label based on the set of co-created features annexed to the ERASMUS-EDU-2022-POL-EXP call. Students, stakeholders, agencies and HEI will be contributors. The label prototype will propose an academic framework (criteria of issuance) and institutional framework and will be applied to 3 different joint degrees to illustrate its applicability to real situations of programs that have been implemented by HEIs consortia. Using engineering measurements, JEDI aims to raise the “technological readiness level” of the academic part of the label from a level 2 (“proof of concept” as supported by EU and by this call) to a level 8 (over 9): label fully defined and qualified.
Among others, key success conditions for our prototype will be to demonstrate the capacity to be generalized to other institutions, its capability to ease the development of joint degrees. The added value of this project is built on the shared ambition of this consortia of redefining the education of engineering and technology degrees in Europe with the will to contribute to the development of an integrated European Engineering Education Space
