The Bachelor of Engineering Corps includes Bachelor of Engineering Programmes (B Eng), and part-time diploma programmes in the field of IT and engineering.

The Civil Engineering Corps includes Bachelor's of Science in Engineering programmes (BSc), Master of Science in Engineering programmes (MSc) (Civil Engineering programmes), and part-time master's programmes in the academic field.

Please be aware that it is only the frontpages of CensorNet that are in English. If you have difficulties understanding the Danish pages, please contact the relevant secretariat.

The proces regarding a new appointment period 2022-2026 has been initiated 

The current 4-year appointment period expires on 31 March 2022. The educational institutions have therefore from 29 October 2021, invited external examiner candidates for the new appointment period running from 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2026. The institutions have invited candidates to both the Bachelor of Engineering Corps and the Civil Engineering Corps, and it has been possible to both apply for reappointment of already appointed examiners in the corps and to have new examiners appointed in the examiners corps.

The time table for the appointment process can be found here (only in Danish). 

The deadline for the institutions to invite external examiner candidates was 6 December 2021.

The deadline for the external examiner candidates to submit their appointment information and application to the Chairmanship was 15 December 2021. However, the candiates exceptionally have until 21 December to send their application for approval to the chairmanship. After this, it will no longer be possible to use the invitation the candidate has received. If you as a candidate still want to apply for an appointment as an external examiner, you must contact the person who has invited you and request to be sent a new invitation. This is called a post-appointment, as you will only have your application processed after the new appointment period has begun

When choosing 'Help' in the menu above, you can find user's manuals for the educational institutions and the external examiners about the appointment process. There are also sent direct mails to all institutions and already appointed external examiners. 

Division of the Corps of External Examiners for Engineering Programmes

During the current appointment period, the Danish Agency for Higher Education and Science decided to divide the Corps of External Examiners for Engineering Programmes into two corps.

As a result of the Agency’s decision, the corps has been divided into the following two corps:

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

The two corps of external examiners are regulated by different examination orders, and the two executive orders include different requirements for the external examiners qualifications, cf. section 57 in the examination order for the university programmes and section 27 in the examination order for the BEng and diploma programmes. 

The biggest difference between the two executive orders is that an external examiner according to section 57 must have a research-based education at master's level in order to be an examiner in bachelor's, master's, and part-time master's programmes. If the external examiner has an education at master's level or higher, he/she can be an examiner in both corps. If the external examiner has an education at bachelor’s level, he/she can be an external examiner in the Bachelor of Engineering Corps.

The Examination Orders can be found in the right menu at this page.

IT support of the two corps of external examiners

For your information 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 corps. The expectation is currently that a new IT system will replace CensorNet. This will be widely publicized once the educational institutions have made a decision after dialogue with the working group.
