Seven Programs Receive ABET Accreditation

Seven undergraduate programs at the Jacobs School were recently reviewed by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET), and all seven were accredited. Programs receiving the ABET stamp of approval include Aerospace Engineering, Bioengineering, Biotechnology, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Structural Engineering. ABET accreditation, a voluntary, non-governmental process of peer review, assures quality in educational institutions and programs and alerts the public that they have met certain standards. State licensing boards and certification programs may require graduation from an ABET-accredited program as the first step in the registration or certification process for professional practice.
