Commitment to Quality Management
The policies implemented by Office of the Dean of the Faculty of Chemistry include the teaching quality of the courses available as the main part of continuous improvement of the Centre's activities. The office is aware of the need to consolidate a culture of Quality and has participated in related activities since 1996, when it formed part of the National Plan for the Quality Assessment of Universities. It has also participated in programmes such as the consultancy service for introducing the European Credit Transfer System (AICRE), monitoring the implementation of the European Credit Transfer System (SICRE) and the Programme for the Promotion of Teaching Innovation (IBP) applied by the Office of the Vice-Chancellor of Teaching Quality and Innovation. It has also taken part in the different calls for the EHUNDU program (UPV/EHU) whose purpose was to support the curricular development of the Bachelor's degrees.
As a fundamental part of its policy and strategy, the Office of the Dean of the Faculty of Chemistry is committed to the design and deployment of a system that guarantees the quality of all the centre's PROCESSES, ensuring its stakeholders' satisfaction and expectations and using resources efficiently for said purpose. This commitment is reflected in obtaining the accreditation of the Bachelor's degree in Chemistry (23/10/2015) and the certification of the implementation of its SGIC based on AUDIT in April 2019, a prerequisite to be able to apply for and obtain institutional accreditation from the center in July 2019.
This systematic process of self-evaluation, analysis of the results and needs of different stakeholders, has served as the basis for the elaboration of the Strategic Plans of the Faculty (2012-2016 and 2018-2020).
The Quality Committee of the Faculty of Chemistry is appointed by the Board of the Centre and participates alongside the Staff of the Dean's Office in the planning and monitoring of the SGIC, acting as one of the vehicles for internal communication regarding the policy, objectives, plans, programmes, responsibilities and achievements of this quality system.
