The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc
a peer review of university programs that is so important to the continuing
vitality and quality of the engineering and engineering technology
professions. Aside from the professional and public good that evaluators
perform, there are specific benefits to the evaluators and their employers.
The evaluators are trained in the Quality Process and are able to hone
their decision-making skills. By virtue of being on campus, evaluators can
identify potential schools and students for future recruitment. It is the
ABET accreditation program which assures the quality education of those who
will be the future innovators and industry leaders.
The IEEE members selected will attend a one-day training seminar
IEEE/ABET accreditation process, one of which will take place at the June
2001 American Society for Engineering Education convention in Albuquerque,
New Mexico. After training, these program evaluators will visit
engineering and engineering technology departments across the country on
behalf of the IEEE and ABET. Evaluation sessions take place each fall and
generally run for two to three days.
