CensorNet - Corps of external examiners for the engineering programmes

The Corps of External Examiners includes Bachelor's of Science in Engineering programmes (BSc), Master of Science in Engineering programmes (MSc) (Civil Engineering programmes), Bachelor of Engineering Programmes (B Eng), and part-time master's programmes in the academic field as well as part-time diploma programmes in the field of IT and engineering.

The Danish Agency for Science and Higher Education has decided that the nationwide Censor Corps for Engineering Programmes should be divided into two censor corps. 

The Agency's decision to divide the censor corps is based on the fact that the use of censors in the different engineering programmes is regulated in two different examination orders, namely the Examination Order for University Degrees (BSc, MSc and Part-time Master) and the Examination Order for the Bachelor of Engineering Programmes (B Eng and Part-time Diploma). The two examination orders include different requirements for the examiner's qualifications; in order to be a censor in BSc, MSc and part-time master's programmes, an external examiner must have a research-based education at master's (candidatus) level.

As a result of the Agency's decision, the censor corps will be divided into the following two censor corps:

  • Bachelor of Engineering Censor Corps (also includes part-time diploma programmes in the field of IT and engineering)
  • Civil Engineering Censor Corps (also includes part-time master's programmes in the field)

Due to the splitting the censor corps, all appointed external examineers have received new letters of appointment for the remainder of the current 4-year term period, which expires March 31, 2022. The examiners who have a research-based education at master's (candidatus) level have been assigned to both censor corps because they meet the requirements for examiners' qualifications in both Examination Orders. The examiners, who do not have a research-based education at master's level, have received a letter of appointment for the Bachelor of Engineering Censor Corps.

There is no technical splitting of the censor corps in CensorNet yet, but a working group has been set up with the participation of censor chairmen and university representatives who are investigating the possibilities in relation to the future IT support of the two censor corps. It is therefore very important that both the educational institutions and the examiners ensure that the external examiners used in BSc, MSc and part-time master's programmes have a research-based education at minimum master's level.
