Accreditation

With the exception of the newly introduced Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering degree, all University curricula leading to bachelor’s degrees in engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, https://www.abet.org. ABET accreditation for the new degree is planned and is expected to be requested during this catalog cycle.

ABET is a nonprofit, non-governmental agency that accredits programs in applied and natural science, computing, engineering and engineering technology.  ABET accreditation is voluntary, and to date, 4,361 programs at 850 colleges and universities in 41 countries have received ABET accreditation. Over 175,000 students graduate from ABET-accredited programs each year, and millions of graduates have received degrees from ABET-accredited programs since 1932.
