Description Learning outcomes from the advanced training programme for "Staatlich geprüfte Techniker/innen" and a degree programme for a Bachelor of Engineering were compared with regard to their content and EQF levels. As a result an accreditation scheme was proposed which can be implemented at the level of universities of applied sciences. The educational institutions involved in the equivalence check plan to start the implementation in August 2010.
