Georgia Southern engineering programs achieve ABET accreditation
The Georgia Southern University bachelor’s degree programs in civil, electrical, manufacturing and mechanical engineering have been accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, the global accreditor of college and university programs in applied and natural science, computing, engineering and engineering technology.
“I want to congratulate all faculty, chairs, associates and staff of the college for this great achievement,” said Allen E. Paulson College of Engineering and Computing dean Mohammad Davoud, Ph.D. “I am especially pleased that our new bachelor of science in Manufacturing Engineering degree program received its initial accreditation just as it is about to move into a brand new building.”
ABET accreditation assures that programs meet standards to produce graduates ready to enter critical technical fields that are leading the way in innovation and emerging technologies, and anticipating the welfare and safety needs of the public.
Sought worldwide, ABET’s voluntary peer-review process is highly respected because it adds critical value to academic programs in the technical disciplines where quality, precision and safety are of the utmost importance.
Developed by technical professionals from ABET’s member societies, ABET criteria focus on what students experience and learn. ABET accreditation reviews look at program curricula, faculty, facilities and institutional support and are conducted by teams of highly skilled professionals from industry, academia and government, with expertise in the ABET disciplines.
