ABET T-shirt Design Contest

As we prepare for our accreditation visit by ABET evaluators in Fall 2018, the College of Engineering is working to ensure that students understand what accreditation is and why it is important.

ABET is the nonprofit, non-governmental accrediting agency for programs in applied and natural science, computing, engineering and engineering technology. ABET accreditation provides assurance that a college or university program meets the quality standards of the profession for which that program prepares graduates. This means that when you graduate, your future employer will know that you have been trained to meet high standards and will be a productive member of the company.

Submit entry via email.

The Contest

We want the ABET evaluators to know that our students understand the value of accreditation! Participants in this contest will design a T-shirt about the value of accreditation. The winning design could be chosen by the College to be printed on t-shirts for students to wear during our accreditation visit this fall!
