SMTP receives international accreditation from ZEvA


  The Central Evaluation and Accreditation Agency (ZEvA), a member of the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education, has awarded the ITU Spectrum Management Training Programme (SMTP) its quality label for higher education and recognition of the SMTP modules as equivalent to Master’s degree modules. With this award, the SMTP can be aligned to Master’s degree programmes internationally, making it easier for Universities to adopt the programme.

This is the first time an ITU training programme has undergone this process, and acquiring this prestigious label highlights the quality of the ITU process in developing training materials.

The ZEvA panel of experts who evaluated the SMTP concluded that in developing the programme, the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation (ECTS) system key features have been fully implemented. The experts also concluded that all SMTP modules correspond to Level 7 of the European Qualification Framework for lifelong learning. With this assessment, Universities should recognize the modules as equivalent to Master’s degree modules and can integrate them into their Masters degrees and enhance the quality of their programmes. By awarding an internationally recognized standard to SMTP, Universities can also map the SMTP modules to their national or regional qualifications framework, making it easier for them to accredit the modules at home.

Due to the internal recognition of the ECTS, Universities that use the SMTP modules in their Master’s degree programmes can now award credits that can be internationally recognised and transferable. This will promote flexible study options and provide students with an opportunity to acquire an academic qualification in the specialized field of spectrum management.
