ABET Accreditation

Accreditation of engineering programs ensures that the programs produce graduates who are prepared to meet the expectations of employers, the public or pursue further study in engineering or other fields. The undergraduate curricula at the School of Engineering are designed as such that the students are expected to attain by the time of graduation:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics;
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors;
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences;
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts;
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives;
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions; and
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

Program’s also formulate, with their program-defined constituents, Program Educational Objectives that are broad statements describing what graduates are expected to attain within a few years after graduation.

ABET Accreditation Information for Accredited Rutgers School of Engineering Programs

ABET requires that each program make available to the public their Program Educational Objectives, their Student Outcomes, and their accreditation status. The information is found using the links below.
