One of the requirements in this new context of higher education is the need to develop systems to schools, ensuring the quality of studies offered. Precisely the main objective set by the national agency ANECA and the regional agency ACSUG within the FIDES-AUDIT calling program is to "given support to the Galician universities in the systematic design and implementation of quality assurance procedures. "
In this calling one of the participants from the Vigo University is the Escola Superior de Enxeñería Informática (ESEI). The ESEI is the assigned center for the Intelligent and Adaptable Software Systems doctoral program. We can not speak therefore of a Quality Assurance System for the doctorate itself , but of a Quality Assurance System in the center whose scope extends to all degree courses in it.
