Key Facts

IQS is strongly committed to educational quality and has established several processes to ensure continuous improvement. Quality is ensured by the Quality Commission of IQS School of Engineering, a Quality department and a Quality Manual.

Quality Management Department was established at the IQS School of Engineering in 1995; initially, the focus was on the technical services that IQS offers to industries, companies, and administrations. Since 2000, a large part of its actions have been aimed at implementing a quality system in the teaching field. The Internal Quality Control System Manual (SGIC) from the IQS School of Engineering of the Universitat Ramon Llull (URL) was presented to the AQU (University Quality Agency) for approval in the 2009 AUDIT meeting and was accepted on 22 April 2010.

The Quality Evaluation Commission of AQU Catalonia held a meeting on 11 December 2012 and ratified the extension of the SGIC design to consider the affiliation of the IQS School of Engineering for the AUDIT program.
