The concerted efforts of 16 educational institutions spanning 11 countries culminated in the inception of JEDI (Joint European Degree Label in Engineering), a pioneering venture among the six pilot projects funded by the Erasmus+ Program. This initiative aims to explore and refine the criteria essential for establishing a unified European label for joint degree programs.
With a duration of one year and an engineering, technological, and scientific educational perspective, this endeavor, coordinated by the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), is dedicated to providing an additional recognition of students’ academic achievements and degrees.
In close cooperation with diverse stakeholders including accreditation agencies, ministries, employers, alumni, and student representatives, the project will scrutinize the viability and impact of the label at the institutional level. Additionally, it will delineate a spectrum of innovative learning methodologies, underscoring the integration of European values within joint degree programs.
JEDI has emerged from the collaboration of three prominent European universities: EELISA, ENHANCE, and EUt+. This cooperation is rooted in a deep understanding of the opportunities and complexities that European joint programs and innovative recognition systems introduce to global learning experiences.
