ABET Accreditation

The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) is an autonomous organization that certifies the quality of engineering education programs through its accreditation activities. It provides direction on best practices in engineering and technology education, and evaluates how effective engineering programs are at meeting the needs of graduates and potential employers.
