|Abstract:||Internationalization and Mobility (I&M) has become an integrated part of engineering education; making institutions embracing it as a worthy profile in their marketing strategies. Though most areas of operation at an engineering institution are annually evaluated through systematic quality assessments; their I&M profile seldom is put under scrutiny. One reason might be that the standard for I&M insufficiently is stated through assessable outcomes and evidence.|
The issue of I&M has been propelled onto the agenda of the CDIO initiative as a suggested 13thCDIO standard. Furthermore; the Swedish board of Higher Education (HSV) has highlighted the need for regular quality assessments that goes beyond the survey tools of STARS and ISB. The Dutch organisation for international cooperation (NUFFIC) has taken it a step further and produced an elaborate matrix as a help in the assessment. In an effort to support the process; this paper will present a self-assessment of I&M at the School of Engineering; Jönköping University with the ambition to formulate clearer outcomes and evidence for excellence in Internationalization and Mobility. The central question will be: What are the evidence for a good standard of internationalization at the university? Information has been gathered from all stakeholders; students; personnel and board members. Research has also been done on what is written in the area of assessing Internationalization & Mobility.
Clearly formulated evidence for excellence in I&M and a model of how to constructively do quality assurance should contribute to the current discussion on Internationalization within the engineering education in Sweden.
