EAEEIE – the European Association for Education in Electrical and Information Engineering was established with in order to enhance partnerships, cooperation, recognition of engineering degrees and exchange of students and staff between European universities. The EAEEIE organization was actively involved in the thematic network activities supported by EU-programs. Participants from about 60-80 European universities worked together on five different projects since 1996. These five projects gave us an opportunity to develop and strengthen cooperation and partnerships in educational area in Electrical and Information Engineering (EIE) in a European dimension. Lifelong Learning, accreditation, mobility and recognition are very important keywords for engineering education all over the world. The global European policy is to encourage mobility of people, workers and citizens, during their studies and during their professional lives. This is also the case in many countries outside Europe. Lifelong Learning means that people should learn, study and improve their qualifications to continuously changing technology. Students and graduates need to adapt themselves to the continuing evolving society. Recognition can be considered both as the possibility for a student to have credits obtained in one country or system to be recognized in another country, and for a worker to have his diploma and qualifications to be recognized in another country. Accreditation is a process by which a degree, a program can receive a certification from a public or private organization. We worked with the projects concerning engineering education on all levels: vocational programs, undergraduate programs (BSc and BE), and graduate programs (MSc and PhD). We developed close relationships with our partner universities while working with EU-projects. We also established new common engineering programs and double degree programs. We enhanced exchange of students and professors/teachers, and extended opportunities for our students for internships in other European countries. This paper will present the thematic network activities within EAEEIE, the objectives, goals and results of the projects run under the patronage of EAEEIE. Examples of the double degree programs will be given, as well as our experience with these programs.
