As part of this responsibility, BCS undertakes a programme of visits to Universities and other Higher Education Institutions to review computing courses.
Courses are accredited for Chartered IT Professional (CITP), BCS's own Chartered qualification.
Additionally, as a Nominated Body of the Engineering Council and the Science Council BCS is licensed to accredit courses at Chartered or Incorporated Engineer and Chartered Scientist level.
