What is ASIIN e. V.?
ASIIN e. V. is a German registered association supported by many organisations, which view the quality of university education as a central concern.
It is an alliance of universities and universities of applied sciences, expert societies, profession-related organisations,
industrial and business associations and unions. It was first founded in 1999 as the non-profit association called ASII for the accreditation
of degree programmes in engineering and informatics, in 2002 the fields of natural sciences and mathematics were included, and it became ASIIN.
Since 2000, ASII or ASIIN has the right to award the accreditation seal of the German Accreditation Council, in addition to the ASIIN quality seal.
In 2008, the activities of ASIIN e. V. were expanded with activities such as the establishment of panels, criteria,
and procedures for the evaluation of QM systems in studying and teaching.
ASIIN e. V. has participated in national and European projects on the quality of university education at a very early stage and has been involved
in the coordination processes of European and international organisations as a member.
What does it mean to be accredited by ASIIN e. V.?
The individual degree programmes are the subject matter of the programme accreditation. A successful accreditation confirms that a degree programme
fulfils the given requirements. This implies a qualification process, the interaction of its elements and the level of achievement of objectives – i.e. the
attainment of the intended learning outcomes for students. In addition, there are external demands made by the political, legal and socio-economical
environment, within which the degree programme is designed and realised.
The quality of a degree programme is also demonstrated in the success that graduates achieve in their profession. It depends on the engagement of all
stakeholders within and outside of the HEI. We therefore see it as decisive for the success that relevant stakeholders at the HEI are involved in the planning,
steering, and implementation of this process.
ASIIN aims to review the logics and efficacy of a qualification process within a degree programme, centring the overall assessment on the effective
attainment of the goals set by the HEI.
