<i>Abstract: </i>The development of the Bologna Process in Germany is reviewed by Edwin Kreuzer, and controversial arguments from the discussions of the process are reviewed. <br/><br/> <i>Title: </i><b>Higher Education in Germany: Thirteen Years after the Bologna Declaration </b><br/> <i>Speaker: </i><b>Edwin Kreuzer</b><br/> <i>Past President Hamburg-Harburg Technical University</i><br/> <br/> <i>Description: </i>The Bologna Declaration was signed in Bologna, Italy, on 19 June 1999 by ministers of education from 29 European countries. The aim of the Bologna Process is to make academic degree and quality assurance standards more compatible in Europe while boosting performance, the desired result of the Process being a European higher education area with greater mobility and better achievement, also on an international scale. Thirteen years after the declaration it is worthwhile to discuss the implications by the Bologna Process on the higher education in Germany. The changes were closer to the UK and Ireland's models than those used in most of continental Europe. Therefore, in many European countries the Process was not implemented without criticism. There is much skepticism and criticism of the Bologna Process from the side of academics. The previous higher education system in Germany was modeled such, that there is a clear difference of vocational and academic higher education. This mostly has an impact on the old engineer's degrees. The development of the Bologna Process in Germany will be reviewed and some controversial arguments from the discussions of the Process will be presented. <br/> <i>Sponsor: </i>European Union Center <br/> <i>Co-sponsors: </i>College of Education, Global Studies in Education program
