The accreditation is important to JAMK because it shows that the degree programme in Logistics Engineering has the same quality criteria as similar degree programmes in Europe’s leading educational institutes.

JAMK’s English-language degree programme in Logistics Engineering became the first Finnish institution of higher education to be awarded the prestigious EUR-ACE accreditation. Awarding of EUR-ACE accreditation is authorised by the European Network for Accreditation of Engineering Education (ENAEE). ”For people applying to study, it is a sign that our degree programme stands up to quality comparison.

"I also believe that the engineers to graduate from JAMK also have a higher-than-usual job market value,” says Sami Kantanen, Head of the Logistics Department and RDI at the School of Technology.

In Finland, the Finnish Higher Education Evaluation Council is authorised to award accreditation. The accreditation shows that the degree programme in Logistics Engineering has the same quality criteria as similar degree programmes in Europe’s leading educational institutes.
Tommi Franssila, who is responsible for the English-language Logistics education, says that accreditation is proof of the quality of the degree programme activities – things are being done right.

“This acknowledgement also means that we must keep doing things right and developing them further. The accreditation opens up new opportunities for us for cooperation with international universities and other institutions of higher education. Recognised quality also offers us new opportunities in corporate cooperation.”
