About the Award

The ABET Innovation Award recognizes vision and commitment that challenge the status-quo in technical education.

It honors individuals, organizations or teams that are breaking new ground by developing and implementing innovation into their ABET-accredited programs.

True innovation is hard to define, but easy to identify. This award distinguishes programs that have brought a new dimension to education in areas like: curriculum development, laboratory experiences, teaching methodologies, cross-disciplinary programs, experiential learning – almost anything designed and proven to improve a student’s educational experience.
