In October 1991, President Dr. Terry Johnson announced the official accreditation for the Oklahoma Christian mechanical and electrical engineering programs by the Accreditation Commission for the Accrediting Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
Oklahoma Christian became the fourth school in the state to have an accredited engineering program. The program graduated its first class in April 1989.
To attain accreditation, the university provided information about faculty credentials and experience, classroom and laboratory facilities, engineering and general education curricula, the engineering student body, university administration and policies, employment of its graduates and evaluations of their work performance.
“Our engineering graduates are now able to proceed in their professional registration activities,” Dr. Troy Pemberton said.
