Following the Fall 2015 Board Meeting, we released the Engineering Criteria changes for public review and comment.

The Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) leadership presented these changes to the Engineering Area Delegation and they were approved at first reading. We encourage you to provide your feedback and share this information with any interested parties.

Based on feedback received and realizing the importance to engage as many perspectives as possible, the EAC has agreed to extend the deadline for public comment. You now have until June 30, 2016 to submit your input using the Feedback Survey.

We would like to emphasize that this will not be your only opportunity to be heard. ABET senior staff and leadership will be presenting at several society events, department heads workshops, and other selected professional venues over the coming months. A list of dates and venues will be posted as they are confirmed.
