Optical Engineering

The aim of the doctoral programme is to provide training leading to a doctoral degree for Spanish and international students who have completed a university qualification in the field of optics and optometry. The students could prepare a doctoral thesis in an area of optics and optometry and will benefit from the experience of the various research groups that work in these fields.

The growing importance of optics and optometry make doctoral training in this field increasingly necessary and attractive, to develop a high-level of specialisation in associated areas. To develop this high-quality, multidisciplinary doctoral programme, the knowledge of various departments and research groups was required, so that more aspects of optical engineering and optometry could be addressed.

General information

Access profile

Given the multidisciplinary nature of the scientific field of the programme, there are a wide range of degrees that qualify applicants for admission. The most suitable prior learning to enter the doctoral programme in Optical Engineering will correspond to graduates with science and technology backgrounds who have taken the master's degree in Photonics, the master's degree in Optometry and Vision Sciences or a master’s degree related to the scientific area of the programme. In addition to this academic background, certain personal characteristics are considered important, such as interest in the research projects that are developed in the programme, critical and analytical capacity, taking initiative, perseverance and persistence in work, and the capacity to work in a team and communicate well in spoken and written form.

The main master’s degrees that provide direct access and do not require bridging courses are:

• master's degree in Photonics
• Erasmus Mundus doctoral degree in Photonics Engineering, Nanophotonics and Biophotonics
• master's degree in Optometry and Vision Sciences
• master's degree in Bioengineering
• master's degree in Biomedical Engineering
• European Master of Science in Research on Information and Communication Technologies

If students have a master’s degree in a science or technology area other than the above, the academic committee of the doctoral programme will check the subjects that have been taken in their previous studies and assess their relation with the area of optics to establish whether the student needs to take bridging courses.

Output profile

Doctoral candidates who complete a doctoral degree will have acquired the following competencies, which are needed to carry out quality research (Royal Decree 99/2011, of 28 January, which regulates official doctoral studies):

a) A systematic understanding of the field of study and a mastery of the research skills and methods related to the field.
b) An ability to conceive, design or create, put into practice and adopt a substantial process of research or creation.
c) An ability to contribute to pushing back the frontiers of knowledge through original research.
d) A capacity for critical analysis and an ability to assess and summarise new and complex ideas.

Duration of studies and dedication regime

Duration
The maximum period of study for full-time doctoral studies is three years, counted from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. The academic committee of the doctoral programme may authorise a doctoral candidate to pursue doctoral studies on a part-time basis. In this case, the maximum period of study is five years, counting from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. For calculating these periods, the date of admission is considered to be the date of the first enrolment for tutorials, and the date of submission the moment in which the Doctoral School officially deposits the doctoral thesis.

For full-time doctoral candidates, the minimum period of study is two years, counted from the date of an applicant's admission to the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited; for part-time doctoral candidates it is four years. When there are justified grounds for doing so, and the thesis supervisor and academic tutor have given their authorisation, doctoral candidates may request that the academic committee of their doctoral programme exempt them from the minimum period of study requirement.

The calculation of periods of study will not include periods of absence due to illness, pregnancy or any other reason provided for in the regulations in force. Students who find themselves in any of these circumstances must notify the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which, where appropriate, must inform the Doctoral School. Doctoral candidates may also temporarily withdraw from the programme for up to one year, and this period may be extended for an additional year. Doctoral candidates who wish to interrupt their studies must submit a justified request to the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which will decide whether or not to approve the request. Each programme will establish conditions for readmission to doctoral studies.

Extension
If full-time doctoral candidates have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, the academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year. In exceptional circumstances, a further one-year extension may be granted, subject to the conditions established by the corresponding doctoral programme. In the case of part-time doctoral candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of the doctoral programme.

Dismissal from the doctoral programme
A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

Access, admission and registration

Access profile

Given the multidisciplinary nature of the scientific field of the programme, there are a wide range of degrees that qualify applicants for admission. The most suitable prior learning to enter the doctoral programme in Optical Engineering will correspond to graduates with science and technology backgrounds who have taken the master's degree in Photonics, the master's degree in Optometry and Vision Sciences or a master’s degree related to the scientific area of the programme. In addition to this academic background, certain personal characteristics are considered important, such as interest in the research projects that are developed in the programme, critical and analytical capacity, taking initiative, perseverance and persistence in work, and the capacity to work in a team and communicate well in spoken and written form.

The main master’s degrees that provide direct access and do not require bridging courses are:

• master's degree in Photonics
• Erasmus Mundus doctoral degree in Photonics Engineering, Nanophotonics and Biophotonics
• master's degree in Optometry and Vision Sciences
• master's degree in Bioengineering
• master's degree in Biomedical Engineering
• European Master of Science in Research on Information and Communication Technologies

If students have a master’s degree in a science or technology area other than the above, the academic committee of the doctoral programme will check the subjects that have been taken in their previous studies and assess their relation with the area of optics to establish whether the student needs to take bridging courses.

Access requirements

Applicants must hold a Spanish bachelor’s degree or equivalent and a Spanish master’s degree or equivalent, provided they have completed a minimum of 300 ECTS credits on the two degrees (Royal Decree 43/2015, of 2 February)

In addition, the following may apply:

  • Holders of an official degree awarded by a university in Spain or any other country in the European Higher Education Area, pursuant to the provisions of Article 16 of Royal Decree 1393/2007, of 29 October, which establishes official university course regulations, who have completed a minimum of 300 ECTS credits on official university degrees, of which at least 60 must be at the master's degree level.
  • Holders of an official Spanish bachelor’s degree comprising at least 300 credits, as provided for by EU regulations. Holder of degrees of this kind must complete bridging courses unless the curriculum of the bachelor’s degree in question included research training credits equivalent in value to those which would be earned on a master's degree.
  • Holders of an official university qualification who, having passed the entrance examination for specialised medical training, have completed at least two years of a training course leading to an official degree in a health-sciences specialisation.
  • Holders of a degree issued under a foreign education system. In these cases, homologation is not required, but the UPC must verify that the degree certifies a level of training equivalent to an official Spanish master's degree and qualifies the holder for admission to doctoral studies in the country where it was issued. Admission on this basis does not imply homologation of the foreign degree or its recognition for any purpose other than admission to doctoral studies.
  • Holders of a Spanish doctoral qualification issued under previous university regulations.
  • Note 1: Doctoral studies entrance regulations for holders of an undergraduate degree awarded before the introduction of the EHEA (CG 47/02 2014)

    Note 2: Governing Council Decision 64/2014, which approves the procedure and criteria for assessing the fulfilment of academic admission requirements for doctoral studies by holders of non-homologated foreign degrees (CG 25/03 2014)

Admission criteria and merits assessment

The academic committee of the doctoral programme in Optical Engineering will apply the following selection and weighting criteria. At all times it will respect the principles of merit and equal opportunities:

• Academic record (weighting: 55%).
• Contact through interviews (personal, telephone, internet, etc.) (weighting: 10%).
• Motivation (weighting: 15%).
• Language knowledge (weighting: 10%).
• Research experience (weighting: 5%).
• Related completed postgraduate programmes (weighting: 5 %).
Personal contact is made through an interview in which the applicant’s attitude, interest in the subject, ability to work in a team and spoken communication skills are assessed, among other factors. As many applicants are living in other countries when they apply for admission to the programme, interviews can be carried out from a distance using the new tools provided by the internet.

Motivation will be assessed in a written report in which students should describe their personal, professional and academic reasons for requesting admission to the programme. This report should be attached on the admissions intranet system.

In the section on language knowledge, merit will be given for languages that are of interest to the programme such as English, Spanish and Catalan.

Training complements

The academic committee for the programme may require that doctoral students pass specific bridging courses. In this case, it will monitor the bridging courses that are taken and establish suitable criteria to limit their duration.

The bridging courses will be on research training, but doctoral students will never be asked to enrol for a number equal to or above 60 ECTS. The academic regulations of doctoral studies state that bridging courses may also be cross-disciplinary. However, this point is likely to be amended so that bridging courses are only associated with research credits, particularly when an applicant enters the doctoral programme with a bachelor’s degree worth 300 ECTS.

Considering the doctoral student activity report (DAD), the academic committee of the programme could propose additional measures to those established in the regulations that lead to the withdrawal of doctoral students who do not meet the established criteria.

The university master’s degrees that provide direct access to the programme without the need for bridging courses are:

• master's degree in Photonics
• Erasmus Mundus doctoral degree in Photonics Engineering, Nanophotonics and Biophotonics
• master's degree in Optometry and Vision Sciences.
• master's degree in Bioengineering
• master's degree in Biomedical Engineering
• European Master of Science in Research on Information and Communication Technologies

Students who hold a master’s degree in science and technology subjects other than the above, such as:
- master’s degree in the areas of industrial engineering, computer engineering or equivalent
- master’s degrees in the areas of physical sciences, biomedicine or equivalents

The academic committee of the doctoral programme will analyse the subjects that applicants have passed in their previous bachelor’s degree and master’s degree studies and assess their relation with the area of optics, so that they can determine whether they need to take bridging courses. If students have to take bridging courses, the research line and research group in which they will prepare the doctoral thesis will be considered, according to the procedure explained in Section 3.2. Bridging courses can be taken during the first year.

Bridging courses are selected mainly from the master’s degree in Photonics, directly linked to the programme.

Below, the subjects from this master’s degree are listed that are most suitable for bridging courses in the doctoral programme in Optical Engineering:
• Laser Systems and Applications: 3 ECTS
• Building Optomechanical Systems: 3 ECTS
• Managing Light with Devices: 3 ECTS
• Measuring with Light: 3 ECTS
• Nonlinear Optics: 3 ECTS
• Visual Biophotonics and Multispectral Imaging: 3 ECTS
• Image Processing in Biophotonics: 3 ECTS

Enrolment period for new doctoral students

From the end of September to mid-October.

Monitoring and evaluation of the doctoral student

Procedure for the preparation and defense of the research plan

Doctoral candidates must submit a research plan, which will be included in their doctoral student activity report, before the end of the first year. The plan may be improved over the course of the doctoral degree. It must be endorsed by the tutor and the supervisor, and it must include the method that is to be followed and the aims of the research.

At least one of these annual assessments will include a public presentation and defence of the research plan and work done before a committee composed of three doctoral degree holders, which will be conducted in the manner determined by each academic committee. The examination committee awards a Pass or Fail mark. A Pass mark is a prerequisite for continuing on the doctoral programme. Doctoral candidates awarded a Fail mark must submit a new research plan for assessment by the academic committee of the doctoral programme within six months.

The committee assesses the research plan every year, in addition to all of the other activities in the doctoral student activity report. Doctoral candidates who are awarded two consecutive Fail marks for the research plan will be obliged to definitely withdraw from the programme.

If they change the subject of their thesis, they must submit a new research plan.

Procedure for assignment of tutor and thesis director

The academic committee of the doctoral programme assigns a thesis supervisor to each doctoral candidate when they are admitted or enrol for the first time, taking account of the thesis supervision commitment referred to in the admission decision.

The thesis supervisor will ensure that training activities carried out by the doctoral candidate are coherent and suitable, and that the topic of the candidate’s doctoral thesis will have an impact and make a novel contribution to knowledge in the relevant field. The thesis supervisor will also guide the doctoral candidate in planning the thesis and, if necessary, tailoring it to any other projects or activities undertaken. The thesis supervisor will generally be a UPC professor or researcher who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience. This includes PhD-holding staff at associated schools (as determined by the Governing Council) and UPC-affiliated research institutes (in accordance with corresponding collaboration and affiliation agreements). When thesis supervisors are UPC staff members, they also act as the doctoral candidate’s tutor.

PhD holders who do not meet these criteria (as a result of their contractual relationship or the nature of the institution to which they are attached) must be approved by the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee in order to participate in a doctoral programme as researchers with documented research experience.

The academic committee of the doctoral programme may approve the appointment of a PhD-holding expert who is not a UPC staff member as a candidate’s thesis supervisor. In such cases, the prior authorisation of the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee is required. A UPC staff member who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience must also be proposed to act as a co-supervisor, or as the doctoral candidate’s tutor if one has not been assigned.

A thesis supervisor may step down from this role if there are justified reasons (recognised as valid by the committee) for doing so. If this occurs, the academic committee of the doctoral programme will assign the doctoral candidate a new thesis supervisor.

Provided there are justified reasons for doing so, and after hearing any relevant input from the doctoral candidate, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may assign a new thesis supervisor at any time during the period of doctoral study.

If there are academic reasons for doing so (an interdisciplinary topic, joint or international programmes, etc.) and the academic committee of the programme gives its approval, an additional thesis supervisor may be assigned. Supervisors and co-supervisors have the same responsibilities and academic recognition.

The maximum number of supervisors of a doctoral thesis is two: a supervisor and a co-supervisor.

For theses carried out under a cotutelle agreement or as part of an Industrial Doctorate, if necessary and if the agreement foresees it this maximum number of supervisors may not apply. This notwithstanding, the maximum number of supervisors belonging to the UPC is two.

More information at the PhD theses section

Permanence

The academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year for full-time doctoral candidates who have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, in the terms outlined in the Academic Regulations for Doctoral Studies of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. In the case of part-time candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of the doctoral programme.

A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

International Mention

The doctoral degree certificate may include International Doctorate mention. In this case, the doctoral candidate must meet the following requirements:

a) During the period of study leading to the award of the doctoral degree, the doctoral candidate must have spent at least three months at a respected higher education institution or research centre outside Spain to complete courses or do research work. The stays and activities carried out must be endorsed by the thesis supervisor and authorised by the academic committee of the programme. The candidate must provide a certifying document issued by the person responsible for the research group of the body or bodies where the stay or activity was completed. This information will be added to the doctoral student’s activity report.
b) Part of the thesis (at least the summary and conclusions) must be written and presented in one of the languages commonly used for science communication in the relevant field of knowledge, which must not be an official language of Spain. This rule does not apply to stays and reports in Spanish or to experts from Spanish-speaking countries.
c) At least two PhD-holding experts belonging to a higher education institution or research centre outside Spain must have issued officially certified reports on the thesis.
d) The thesis examination committee must have included at least one PhD-holding expert from a higher education or research institution outside Spain who was not responsible for the candidate’s stay abroad (point a) above).
e) The thesis defence must have taken place on UPC premises or, in the case of joint programmes, at the location specified in the collaboration agreement.

Learning resources

The doctoral programme in Optical Engineering is taught continuously and satisfactorily. Students have access to material resources (research laboratories, offices, specific research resources, computer resources, a mechanical and electronic workshop) belonging to the department and CD6 research centre that are involved. General UPC services are also available (computer, audiovisual, university libraries).

The GOAPI research group is situated in the Department of Optics and Optometry in the TR8 building of the Terrassa Campus, UPC. It has two research laboratories (a total of 114 m²) equipped for optical and digital image processing and other optical signals, and funded through public and private projects. It also has an office exclusively for doctoral students (25 m²). In addition, doctoral students can use meeting rooms and classrooms of various sizes in the TR8 building for meetings, courses or seminars. All these rooms are fully equipped.

The GREO research group is in CD6, housed in the TR11 building of the Terrassa Campus of the UPC. It has five research laboratories (a total of 310 m²), equipped with the basic and specialised material required to carry out the projects that are undertaken there, funded through public and private research projects. It also has a prototype room of 60 m² for the integration, adjustment and testing of devices designed and constructed in CD6. It is situated close to the workshops and has all the services required for its function. For grantholders, there is an office exclusively for doctoral students (60 m²) and an office shared with the teaching and research staff (80 m²). In addition, in CD6 there are two meeting rooms and a classroom-library where meetings, courses and seminars are held. All of these areas are perfectly equipped.

In addition, the mechanical and electronic workshops of the Department of Optics and Optometry are found in CD6. These workshops occupy a total space of 110 m² and have cutting-edge equipment to support the design and construction of projects. The mechanical workshop has machine tools and measuring instruments that are suitable for the work that is carried out. The electronics workshop has development tools for families of microcontrollers of 8 and 16 bits and to develop programmable logic, types CPLD and FPGA.

The DONLL research group is in the Gaia (TR14) research building of the Terrassa Campus, UPC. It has two research laboratories (total of 50 m²) that are fully equipped to carry out nonlinear optical and laser dynamics experiments (optical spectrum analyser, RF analyser, oscilloscope, signal generators, etc.), funded through public and private projects.. It also has three offices for doctoral students (50 m²). Doctoral students can also use two meeting rooms (Gaia building) and classrooms (in ETSEIAT) of various sizes, for meetings, courses and seminars. All of these are perfectly equipped (one room has videoconference equipment).

The VOS emerging research group (Vision, Optometry and Health) is in the Clínica Universitaria de la Visión (CUV; TR30), where much of the research work is carried out. The members of the VOS have various units available to them that are perfectly equipped to carry out mainly clinical research. Some notable units are those of Vision and Learning, Contact Lenses and Low Vision.

Finally, the TIEG research group is situated in the TR2 building of the Terrassa Campus, UPC. It has five research laboratories (a total of 135 m²), equipped with the basic and specialised material required to carry out the projects that are undertaken there, funded through public and private research projects. It also has an office shared with teaching and research staff for doctoral students.

All the research groups earmark part of their funding from public and private projects for doctoral students, so that they can complement their training by attending conferences, seminars and other training activities; and participate in meetings of thematic networks, projects, workshops, etc. Another factor that favours the mobility of doctoral students is that the programme belongs to various thematic networks. In addition, for several years, our doctoral students have benefited from mobility grants that have been awarded by the Ministry of Education. As the programme has an Excellence Award, the students have also taken part in specific calls to promote the mobility of students and lecturers.

    Thesis abstract: The first papers on the fitting of ortho-k lenses in ametropic individuals, treatment that allows them to enjoy good vision without the need to wear glasses or contact lenses, were published almost 60 years ago. Both the reversibility of the treatment when the lenses are discontinued, as well as the slight loss of the effect suffered by users throughout the day have been studied, but there is no paper to date that justifies or foresees diurnal regression based on corneal biomechanical properties provided by the Corvis ST® tonometer. OBJECTIVES: To assess how the corneal and visual parameters vary throughout the day, in the short and medium term, after having slept with orthokeratology lenses, and relate them to the baseline data of visual acuity, refraction, topographic and biomechanical properties, in this way, to help clinicians make a better prognosis in front of a potential orthokeratology treatment. We also wanted to verify whether the parameters related to corneal biomechanics vary after orthokeratology treatment. METHODS: 75 adults with myopia between -0.50 and -5.00 D with a corneal and refractive astigmatism lower than -1.25 D, were recruited to be fitted at the Center Universitari de la Visió (FOOT-UPC) with Seefree® orthokeratology lenses (Conóptica - Hecht Contactlinsen), spherical or toric, as required by each individual. Baseline measurements of LogMAR visual acuity, refraction, corneal tomography (Pentacam®), corneal biomechanics (Corvis ST®) and intraocular pressure (CT-80®) were performed. After starting to sleep with the orthokeratology lenses, the same measurements were repeated after the first night of use, after one week and after three months, twice a day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, 8 hours apart between both visits. RESULTS: 69 patients reached the weekly control and 49 the quarterly. None of the dropouts responded to severe complications. A mean diurnal regression of 0.25 D was found throughout the day at all moments evaluated. Only a slight statistically significant relationship was found between the baseline refraction and the diurnal refractive regression in the quarterly control (R2=0.099 p=0.015). After ortho-k, the cornea shows greater rigidity in the morning that decreases during the day, while the changes in curvature in both the anterior and posterior cornea throughout the day were similar to those suffered by non-users of orthokeratology. Baseline values of anterior corneal asphericity, corneal biomechanics, pachymetry and intraocular pressure were not predictive of orthokeratology success or diurnal regression. Regarding topography, it was only observed that the smaller the anterior corneal steep radius, the greater the orthokeratology effect (¿=-0.431 p=0.002). The biomechanically adjusted intraocular pressure did not show variations throughout the study. The changes found after orthokeratology in corneal biomechanics seem to be more related to the pachymetry change than due to a modification of corneal stiffness. CONCLUSIONS: The biomechanical parameters provided by Corvis ST® do not predict the corneal response to ortho-k. Smaller anterior steep corneal radii seem to favour the orthokeratology effect. Corneal biomechanics does not seem to be affected by orthokeratology, although some Corvis ST® parameters do change, because they are influenced by pachymetry variations and this is a well-known effect after orthokeratology. Intraocular pressure is not affected by orthokeratology treatment when it is biomechanically compensated. These results provide security to the eye care practitioners in their clinical practice regarding concerns about a possible negative impact of the orthokeratology effect on corneal biomechanics in the short and medium term.

    Thesis abstract: Vision loss affects physical, psychological, and emotional wellbeing and social life as well. High life expectancy and health policies are translated into an aging population worldwide, which has higher risk of eye¿s disorders and diseases. Therefore, new systems able to contribute at non-invasive objective diagnosis of ocular diseases are demanded. In this context, optical imaging techniques have a primary role as they allow obtaining information from almost any part of the eye. In particular, many important eye and systemic diseases early manifest themselves in the retina and, since the pioneer study of Helmholtz, many resources have been spent to acquire good images of the ocular fundus. In common clinics, fundus photography is restricted to color imaging sensors with only three spectral bands, and, due to metamerism, many structures might remain hidden. Recently, hyperspectral imaging techniques have come to view as a promising and powerful tool for the spectral analysis of several retinal diseases, increasing the amount of information extractable from fundus photography. However, in the literature, examples are restricted to the visible range of the electromagnetic spectrum, have few bands and/or make use of modified commercial fundus cameras. Accordingly, the goal of this project is to build a novel hyperspectral fundus camera based on light-emitting diodes allowing the fast imaging of the retina both in the visible and in the near infrared region of the spectrum, which has never been explored, through a considerable number of spectral bands. This fundus camera has been designed, tested and developed with new custom-made illumination and detection strategies combined with novel cutting- edge technology at the Center for Sensors, Instruments and Systems Development (CD6) of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC, Terrassa). Finally, after a scrupulous clinical study carried out at the Instituto de Microcirugía Ocular (IMO, Barcelona) and at the University Vision Center of UPC (CUV-UPC, Terrassa), qualitative and quantitative results are presented for healthy and diseased eyes. The available spectroscopic information and the visualization of retinal structures and lesions, especially those affecting the choroidal vasculature and retinal pigment epithelium that are hardly visible in conventional color fundus images, underline the clinical potential of this system as a new tool for ophthalmic diagnosis.

Quality

The Validation, Monitoring, Modification and Accreditation Framework (VSMA Framework) for official degrees ties the quality assurance processes (validation, monitoring, modification and accreditation) carried out over the lifetime of a course to two objectives—the goal of establishing coherent links between these processes, and that of achieving greater efficiency in their management—all with the overarching aim of improving programmes.
