Image of

Arkansas Tech University has learned that four programs in its College of Applied Sciences have once again met the accreditation standards set forth by ABET, Inc. The Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, Inc., has granted accreditation to the Arkansas Tech baccalaureate programs in electrical engineering and mechanical engineering. The Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, Inc., has granted accreditation to the Arkansas Tech baccalaureate programs in computer science and information systems. All four programs were approved for reaccreditation during the commissions’ summer 2010 meetings. “Maintaining these accreditations is a mark of distinction for Arkansas Tech University and a credit to our outstanding faculty,” said Dr. John W. Watson, vice president for academic affairs. “Accreditation assures that our programs meet the high standards set by the profession and provides a structure for us to assess, evaluate and improve the quality of the program.” ABET is a not-for-profit organization, owned and operated by its more than 25 professional and technical member societies. An international organization with some 1,500 volunteers, ABET has set the higher-educational standards in its fields for nearly 75 years.
