About ABET

ABET, incorporated as the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc., is a non-governmental organization that accredits post-secondary education programs in "applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology". The accreditation of these programs occurs mainly in the United States but also internationally. ABET accreditation is assurance that a college or university program meets the quality standards established by the profession for which it prepares its students. ABET promote excellence in technical education by focusing on continuous quality improvement processes, not by prescribing methods. With technological change occurring so rapidly, institutions seeking to ensure their programs are dynamically evolving participate in the ABET accreditation process.

ABET accreditation:

  • Verifies that an educational experience meets the global standard for technical education in a profession.
  • Enhances the employment opportunities—multinational corporations require graduation from an accredited program.
  • Supports the entry to a technical profession through licensure, registration, and certification—all of which often require graduation from an ABET-accredited program as a minimum qualification.
  • Establishes the eligibility for many federal student loans, grants, and/or scholarships.
  • Paves the way to work globally, because ABET accreditation is recognized worldwide through international agreements, and many other countries’ national accrediting systems are based on the ABET model.
