Accreditation

Like physicians and attorneys, all engineers in the United States are licensed or registered, unless exempt by the laws of a particular state, because their work affects public welfare, health, and safety. The first step in becoming a registered or licensed engineer is to hold a degree from an accredited engineering program.

“The undergraduate civil engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, industrial engineering, and chemical engineering programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.

The undergraduate computer science program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.

The engineering technology and management program is accredited by the Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering.”

The aviation flight curriculum is approved by the Federal Aviation Administration.
