Andrews Computing Program is now ABET Accredited

The Andrews University Department of Engineering & Computer Science’s computing program is now accredited through the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology). The computing program offers a Bachelor of Science in Computing with emphases in computer science and software systems. The engineering program has been ABET accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET since 2006.

“The Department of Engineering & Computer Science is a family and through a team effort, including the support of Verlyn Benson, immediate past dean of the College of Technology, and Keith Mattingly, dean of the College of Arts & Sciences, ABET accreditation of the computing program has affirmed the strength of our program,” says George Agoki, chair. “We plan to use the processes of accreditation, which includes assessment, to keep our computing and engineering programs on the cutting edge. ABET accreditation is valuable to Andrews University, but more importantly to our students as they continue their academic or professional journeys.”

ABET is the nationally recognized accrediting body for college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering and technology. ABET is a federation of 31 professional and technical societies that contribute funds and volunteers to set policy, develop strategy and conduct ABET accreditation activities worldwide on behalf of their professions. There are more than 3,100 ABET-accredited programs at over 660 colleges and universities in 23 countries. ABET is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.
