We don’t select our evaluators directly. Nominations for ABET PEVs come through our member societies. Learn more about PEV nomination requirements, and any criteria for service specific to your member society.MORE
ABET accreditation would not be possible without our experts—professionals from industry, academia, and government dedicated to contributing to their professions through the ongoing improvement of the quality of technical education.
We rely on our experts to evaluate program materials, visit campuses, and participate in accreditation decisions. Most begin their service as Program Evaluators, or PEVs, who do the hands-on work of accrediting approximately 3,600 programs at over 700 institutions in 29 countries. Those with the strongest leadership abilities are promoted into the ranks of the Commissions, each serving as a Team Chair – responsible for leading teams of evaluators.
More than 2,200 dedicated technical professionals from academia, industry, and government form the heart of our peer-based accreditation services. These well-respected experts are the face of ABET, representing us at campuses around the world.
