WHY DOES ACCREDITATION MATTER?
Accreditation provides assurance that a collegiate program meets the quality standards necessary to produce graduates who are ready to enter their professions in the global workforce. Students who graduate from accredited programs have access to enhanced opportunities in areas such as employment, mobility, and providing a positive impact on society.
ABET accreditation is voluntary. The organization currently accredits 4,144 programs in applied and natural science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology programs at 812 colleges and universities in 32 countries worldwide. More than 100,000 students graduate from ABET-accredited programs each year and millions of graduates have received degrees from ABET-accredited programs since 1932. Graduates of ABET-accredited programs have a solid educational foundation and are capable of leading the way in innovation, emerging technologies, and in anticipating the welfare and safety needs of the public.
