The European Qualifications Framework (EQF) is a translation tool that helps communication and comparison between qualifications systems in Europe. Its eight common European reference levels are described in terms of learning outcomes: knowledge, skills and competences. This allows any national qualifications systems, national qualifications frameworks (NQFs) and qualifications in Europe to relate to the EQF levels. Learners, graduates, providers and employers can use these levels to understand and compare qualifications awarded in different countries and by different education and training systems.

  6. Master's Degree in "Politics and Applied Methods for the Protection of the Environment". Department of Civil Engineering. Faculty of Engineering. Piraeus University of Applied Sciences (former Technological Educational Institute of Piraeus).

    Knowledge:The graduate of the MSc in "Policies and Applied Methods for the Protection of the Environment" explores key concepts, the methodological axes and, especially, implementation of environmental policies. Deepening in these items, not just in theory but - especially - in applied level is a key educational and research orientation of the Postgraduate Program which essentially differentiates it from all currently existing graduate programs in the Universities in the broader field of environmental sciences. In particular, for graduates with a basic degree from Departments and Schools of Engineering disciplines, the content of the Postgraduate Program significantly expands their professional and academic fields and gives them the background knowledge to be able to respond quickly to respective labour market and academic research needs, expanding their theoretical and practical knowledge on the environmental aspect of design and construction and how to protect the natural and human environment, both at the level of the corresponding techniques, and in terms of procedures and their implementation policies. Skills: The skills acquired by graduates based on curriculum are those of a specialized scientific staff who could either develop (or coordinate) an applied research program, or join directly the labour market and meet the growing business demand observed internationally in this field, both in the private and in the pu ...
