As of October 1, 2023, ABET accredits a total of 4,674 programs at 920 colleges and universities in 42 countries/areas around the world, an increase of 110 programs over 2022.
In the 2022-23 accreditation cycle, we accredited programs for the first time in two new countries: Ethiopia and the Dominican Republic. Bahir Dar University in Ethiopia received accreditation for four of their bachelor’s degree programs and Universidad de las Americas in the Dominican Republic for three of their bachelor’s degree programs.
The Mechatronics Engineering Technology program at Kent State University participated in the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission’s pilot for Mechatronics Engineering Technology program criteria during the 2022-23 cycle. The bachelor’s degree program was the first to be accredited under the Mechatronics Engineering Technology program criteria, which are now officially implemented and in use for the 2023-24 accreditation cycle.
ABET accreditation means that students, employers and society can be confident that a program is producing graduates ready to enter the global workforce. Sought worldwide, our voluntary peer-review process determines that a program is meeting the needs of industry while continuously improving the education it offers. Developed by technical professionals from ABET member societies, our criteria focus on what students experience and learn.
