The organization, recognized by the Council for the Accreditation of Higher Education (Copaes), endorses design programs at the bachelor’s degree level in the country.
The educational programs that are a part of this academic body are recognized by the Inter-Institutional Committees for the Evaluation of Higher Education (CIEES).
The degrees in Architecture and Administration and Promotion of the Urban Work (APOU) are accredited until 2018. Industrial and Graphic Design degrees have also been given the go ahead until December 2021, guaranteeing academic improvement opportunities for the 1,741 students enrolled in the Architecture and Design Department.
