TU Ilmenau receives system accreditation for the second time

The TU Ilmenau has received system accreditation for the second time. As a system-accredited university, the TU Ilmenau has, within the framework of its quality management system, tested instruments, processes and control criteria to independently ensure and further develop the quality of its study programmes and study conditions.

As a system-accredited university, the TU Ilmenau has, within the framework of its quality management system, tested instruments, processes and control criteria to independently ensure and further develop the quality of its study programmes and study conditions. The university is thus legitimised to accredit its study programmes itself in a defined internal procedure, with the participation of external experts.

A quarter of all universities in the Federal Republic of Germany have so far provided this proof and bear the seal of "system accredited". Only 18 universities, 11 of which have already undergone this examination for the second time and are thus considered to be re-accredited.

Just recently, the university underwent another external audit of its quality management system and was able to achieve system reaccreditation until 2026. "For us, quality has a system," says the Vice President for Studies and Teaching at TU Ilmenau, Professor Anja Geigenmüller. "Our quality assurance system in the area of study and teaching is demonstrably suitable for achieving our qualification goals, ensuring the quality standards of our study programmes and creating a quality culture in the university in the process. I am therefore all the more pleased to be able to make role models for excellent teaching visible through quality assurance measures such as the teaching award and to clearly underline the importance of excellent teaching both within the university and externally."

According to the decision of the Accreditation Commission of the accreditation agency ACQUIN, the TU Ilmenau is again system-accredited until 30 September 2026.
