The Industrial Engineering Program has been accredited by ABET (Accreditation Board for
Engineering and Technology- USA) since 2008.
ABET, Inc., is the recognized accreditor for college and university programs in applied science,
computing, engineering, and technology. Among the most respected accreditation organizations in
the U.S., ABET has provided leadership and quality assurance in higher education for over 75 years.
ABET accredits over 3,100 programs at more than 600 colleges and universities worldwide.
What Is ABET Accreditation?
ABET accreditation is assurance that a college or university program meets the quality standards established by the profession for which it prepares its students. For example, an accredited engineering program must meet the quality standards set by the engineering profession. An accredited computer science program must meet the quality standards set by the computing profession.
Who Sets the ABET Quality Standards?
The quality standards programs must meet to be ABET-accredited are set by the ABET professions themselves. This is made possible by the collaborative efforts of many different professional and technical societies. These societies and their members work together through ABET to develop the standards, and they provide the professionals who evaluate the programs to make sure they meet those standards.
Why Is ABET Accreditation Important?
- Accreditation helps students and their parents choose quality college programs.
- Accreditation enables employers to recruit graduates they know are well-prepared.
- Accreditation is used by registration, licensure, and certification boards to screen applicants.
- Accreditation gives colleges and universities a structured mechanism to assess, evaluate and improve the quality of their programs.
