Accreditation

All undergraduate engineering programs at the Washkewicz College of Engineering at Cleveland State University have been accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. In addition, the Electronic Engineering Technology program has been accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET.

ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) is a not-for-profit, non-governmental accrediting agency for programs in applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology and is also recognized as an accreditor by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. The accreditation provides assurance that a college or university program meets the quality standards of the profession for which that program prepares graduates. The ABET accredits programs, but not institutions. It provides specialized accreditation for post-secondary programs within degree-granting institutions already recognized by national or regional institutional accreditation agencies or national education authorities worldwide.

The accreditation is voluntary, and to date, approximately 3,600 programs at over 700 colleges and universities in 29 countries have received ABET accreditation. Approximately 85,000 students graduate from ABET-accredited programs each year, and millions of graduates have received degrees from ABET-accredited programs since 1932.
