The Association for Evaluation and Accreditation of Engineering Programs (MÜDEK) aims to enhance the quality
of engineering education in Turkey; it embraces as its basic principles the goals to execute this task in line with
the philosophy of continuous improvement and total quality and to meet the expectations of institutions offering
engineering education in a continuous manner. In order to sustain the quality of service at the highest level,
MÜDEK abides by the following values:
All MÜDEK officials and volunteers initiate and maintain respectful and close relations
with all institutions to whom they provide services. They are sensitive to the current needs and expectations of
these institutions, and they are well aware that the quality of the services they provide will be judged by those
receiving these services.
Continuous learning is a prerequisite for continuous improvement. MÜDEK therefore
continuously learns both from its activities and performance, and from alike organizations. Development of MÜDEK
officials and volunteers are supported and promoted so that they can realize and use their full potential.
MÜDEK offers services that add value to the relevant institutions and other constituents.
The added value of a service provided is assessed by means of direct feedback. In particular, MÜDEK Evaluation
Teams continuously seek to gather valuable feedback in order to continuously improve engineering education and
the program evaluation process.
Maximizing the value of a service offered and increasing the success depend on
developing partnerships. MÜDEK therefore seeks out and develops opportunities for partnerships with national and
international organizations. For a sustainable partnership, it is essential that goals are agreed upon; that experience,
resources and knowledge are shared; and that relations based on cooperation, trust, respect and openness are
established among partners.
As individuals who assume responsibility towards all constituents, MÜDEK officials and
volunteers adhere to the highest level of ethical conduct in terms of transparency and accountability. Accordingly,
they exhibit professional conduct and avoid any conflict of interest as described in the MÜDEK Code of Ethics
Transparency and Accountability:
MÜDEK assumes responsibility for informing its constituents and the
general public and for holding itself accountable for all of its activities, in particular activities related to evaluation
