Accreditation and assessment

School of Polytechnic

Education backed by experts.

The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) assessment criteria are based on the principles of total quality management and continuous improvement. This assessment-accreditation process requires that each program’s mission be consistent with the institutional mission. The mission must be translated into specific program educational objectives and student outcomes that are expected as a result of the educational process. The student outcomes should be measurable, and both objectives and outcomes must be assessed regularly. The results of outcome assessments are used as feedback to make program improvements, and a quality assurance and management process is in place to achieve success.

The Computer Engineering Technology degree is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

  2. Demonstrate readiness for career advancement, promotion, and mobility
  3. Demonstrate continuous learning, either on-the-job or in graduate school
  4. Demonstrate the ability to function as a contributing member of society and the profession
  5. Demonstrate effective teamwork skills and recognize ethical responsibilities
