Internal Quality Control Standards

The School of Sciences believes that it is of utmost importance to ensure the quality of its degree programs and the services it offers. For that reason, it has instituted Internal Quality Control Standards (SGIC) as part of the first implementation of the AUDIT program overseen by the National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation (ANECA). This program systematically covers the activities that the School carries out in order to strengthen the quality and ensure continuous improvement of all the official degree programs (undergraduate, master's and doctoral degrees) and services it offers.

The School of Sciences has a Quality Assurance Committee, which was approved on Thursday, November 22, 2007. This committee coordinates the planning and follow-up tasks of the Internal Quality Control Standards (SGIC). The Quality Assurance Committee also acts as a vehicle for communication of the School's quality policies and objectives by ensuring dissemination to the university community and compliance with these policies.

Through the incorporation of strategies for review and continuous improvement, the School seeks to develop and monitor its actions, and to review and redefine them based on the needs and expectations of its stakeholders.
