What is ABET?
ABET, Inc., is the recognized U.S. accreditor of college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering, and technology. Accreditation ensures the quality of the postsecondary education students receive. ABET is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.
Is it that important?
The accreditation review process ensures educational quality by determining if a degree program at an institution is meeting criteria and guidelines. Being ABET accredited means OC Engineering degree programs meet or exceed the ABET criteria and ensures prospective employers and engineering registration boards that our graduates are well-prepared for their technical careers.
Bottom line: If you are getting an engineering degree, get one from an accredited program!
