ABET Engineering Accreditation
Our eight undergraduate engineering programs in aerospace systems engineering, biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, corrosion engineering, and mechanical engineering are all accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
ABET is a specialized accreditor that accredits college and university programs in applied and natural science, computing, engineering and engineering technology. With ABET accreditation, students, parents, employers, and the community can be confident that a program meets the quality standards that produce graduates prepared to enter a global workforce. Accreditation matters. Learn why.
Each of our programs has documented student outcomes that support the program educational objectives. Attainment of these outcomes prepares graduates to enter the professional practice of engineering. All ABET-accreditated programs share the seven student outcomes shown here; individual programs may have articulated additional student outcomes.
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
- An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
- An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
- An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
- An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
- An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
- An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
