Accreditation

ABET is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).

ABET accredits college and university programs in the disciplines of applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology at the associate, bachelor, and master degree levels.

With ABET accreditation, students, employers, and the society we serve can be confident that a program meets the quality standards that produce graduates prepared to enter a global workforce.

ABET began as the educational standard against which professional engineers in the United States were held for licensure. Today, after more than 80 years, their standards continue to play this fundamental role and have become the basis of quality for over 40 disciplines all over the world.

Developed by technical professionals from ABET’s member societies, their criteria focuses on what students experience and learn. Sought worldwide, ABET’s voluntary peer-review process is highly respected because it adds critical value to academic programs in the technical disciplines, where quality, precision, and safety are of the utmost importance.

Their more than 2,200 experts come from industry, academia, and government. They give their time and effort supporting quality assurance activities around the world by serving as program evaluators, commissioners, board members, and advisors.
