Why Accreditation Matters

Accreditation is proof that a collegiate program has met certain standards necessary to produce graduates who are ready to enter their professions. Students who graduate from accredited programs have access to enhanced opportunities in employment; licensure, registration and certification; graduate education and global mobility.

An ABET-accredited program assures prospective students that:

  • the institution is committed to improving their educational experience
  • the program is committed to using best practices and innovation in education
  • the program is guided by its industry, government, and academic constituents through formal feedback
  • the program considers the students' perspective as part of its continuous quality improvement process

Earning a degree from an ABET-accredited program:

  • Verifies that the quality of the educational experience you’ve received meets the standards of the profession.
  • Increases and enhances employment opportunities.
  • Permits and eases entry to a technical profession through licensure, registration, and certification.
  • Establishes eligibility for many federal student loans, grants, and/or scholarships.
