Will this degree be accredited by ABET?
The universal accreditor of engineering programs in the U.S. is ABET -- Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology. ABET accreditation is only granted after the first class of students graduates from the program. Therefore, this online degree is not yet an ABET accredited program. We will seek ABET accreditation upon the graduation of the first class of students, in Spring 2014. It may take another year to obtain ABET accreditation.
In designing our program we have been in close contact with and are following the strict advice and guidelines of ABET to help ensure eventual accreditation.
The online courses are taught by the same faculty who offer these courses on campus, so you are assured of a high-quality and challenging engineering education.
