The main objectives of the education quality system include:

- making the education offer of the PWSZ increasingly attractive and competitive.
The system includes:
- monitoring academic standards,

- assessing the availability of information regarding education,
- assessing students’ mobility,
- assessing the students’ living conditions,
- collecting the opinions of Skierniewice PWSZ graduates about the course of their studies,
- collecting the employers’ opinions about the value of PWSZ graduates employed by them,
- devising proper tools used to complete these tasks.
Monitoring academic standards involves systematic analysis and assessment of:
- teachers in a given field of study, with documented research and teaching achievements,
- the compatibility of the syllabus and the assumed educational outcomes in a given scientific field and discipline.
The assessment of the educational process in a given field of study includes the education levels and forms of studies (full-time, part-time). The following elements are assessed:
- the graduate’s silhouette
- study plan,
- detailed curricula of individual subjects,
- the ECTS credit system,
- examination requirements,
- the requirements of BA and engineering diploma theses,
- the requirements and range of diploma examinations.
