Engineering Undergraduate Programs Reaccredited for Six More Years

"North Carolina A&T State University’s College of Engineering (COE) announced that its undergraduate and graduate degree programs in architectural engineering, biological engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering, industrial and systems engineering and mechanical engineering have been reaccredited by the Accreditation Commission of ABET -- the nationally recognized accreditor of college and university programs in engineering, computing, applied science, and engineering technology.  For Engineering programs throughout the nation, ABET accreditation demonstrates a program’s commitment to providing its students with a quality education, where the maximum review cycle is six years. North Carolina A&T’s College of Engineering has a proud tradition of its programs earning ABET accreditation, where its oldest programs first earned ABET accreditation in 1969.

Dr. Robin Coger, dean of the College of Engineering acknowledged the sustained efforts of the college faculty and administrators in making this reaccreditation possible. “This result was achieved through a true team effort due to actions of our constituents within the College, combined with those of our many partners across the greater University. We are all pleased that our programs have once again been granted the full six-years of ABET accreditation.”

About Accreditation
ABET is the recognized accreditor of college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering, and technology.  Accreditation is a voluntary, peer-review process that requires programs to undergo comprehensive, periodic evaluations.  The evaluations, conducted by teams of volunteer professionals working in industry, government, academe, and private practice within the ABET disciplines, focus on program curricula, faculty, facilities, institutional support, and other important areas. 

One of the key elements of ABET accreditation is the requirement that programs continuously improve the quality of education provided.  As part of this continuous improvement requirement, programs set specific, measurable goals for their students and graduates, assess their success at reaching those goals, and improve their programs based on the results of their assessment. 

ABET is a not-for-profit organization, owned and operated by its more than 25 professional and technical member societies.  An internationally respected organization with some 1,500 volunteers, ABET has set the higher-educational standards in its fields for nearly 75 years. More information about ABET, its member societies, and the evaluation criteria used to accredit programs can be found at"
