Slide 6

General Intro to ABET Recognized accreditor for school and college programs in connected science, figuring, building, and innovation An alliance of 30 expert and specialized social orders speaking to these fields Provided administration and quality affirmation in advanced education for more than 70 years Currently certifies more than 2,500 projects at more than 550 universities and colleges Also give initiative globally through assentions, for example, the Washington Accord

Slide 7

A Brief History Was built up in New York in 1932 as the Engineers\' Council for Professional Development (ECPD) In 1980, ECPD was renamed the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) keeping in mind the end goal to all the more precisely mirror its accentuation on accreditation

Slide 8

ABET Mission Serves people in general through the advancement and headway of training in connected science, registering, designing and innovation. ABET will: Accredit instructive projects Promote quality and advancement in training Consult and help with the improvement and progression of instruction worldwide in a monetarily self-maintaining way Communicate with our supporters and people in general in regards to exercises and achievements Anticipate and get ready for the changing environment and the future needs of voting public Manage the operations and assets to be successful and financially mindful

Slide 14

What is and Why to get Accreditation It is the quality certification that training is meeting least principles It is a non-administrative, peer survey handle that guarantees instructive quality It is a willful, intermittent audit It confirms that a system meets the criteria It guarantees that graduates are satisfactorily arranged for expert practice

Slide 15

What is and Why to get Accreditation (cont.) It empowers nonstop change of nature of training It strengths formalization and documentation of good practices as of now set up in the project It energizes new and inventive methodologies It distinguishes licensed projects to the constituents It is a thought for admission to numerous graduate projects

Examples of Program Goals Computer Engineering Technology Electronics Engineering Technology

Slide 31

Computer Engineering Technology Prepares graduates to join the workforce as specialized experts in an assortment of commercial ventures including data innovation. CET graduates take a hands-on way to deal with outlining and executing PC frameworks or other computerized subsystems, programming, and interfaces that connection PCs to other physical frameworks. They outline programming frameworks; make code and conventions; test and assess equipment and programming items and forms; and analyze and take care of issues. Graduates ought to likewise have proper information, experience and abilities to work viably in multidisciplinary groups, adjust to changes in specialized situations all through their vocations, and advancement in their expert obligations. Program Goals

Slide 32

Electronics Engineering Technology Prepares graduates to join the workforce as specialized experts in an assortment of commercial ventures. EET graduates assume a crucial part in the building group, ordinarily outlining and executing equipment and programming answers for specialized issues. Graduates ought to likewise have proper learning, knowledge and aptitudes to work successfully in multidisciplinary groups, adjust to changes in specialized situations all through their vocations, and advancement in their expert obligations.
