EXTERNAL ASSESSMENT PLAN FOR STUDY PROGRAMS

Regarding AUN-QA programme assessment, CENReas has planned to conduct internationally external assessment for its study programs. In 2021, the college is carrying out AUN-QA programme assessment of Land Management.

QUALITY IMPROVEMENT OF STUDY PROGRAMS

After having been carrying out internal AUN-QA programme assessment, study programs will be registered for their quality improvement in the following year in order to improve deficiencies of the previous year reported in AUN-QA programme assessment. CENRes has improved and enhanced education quality of undergraduate study programs such as Environmental Sciences, Environmental Engineering, Land Management, and Environment and Natural Resource Management.   

Quality improvement in study program is a regular activity at College of Environment and Natural Resources.
