ABET (the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology), the recognized accreditor for college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering, and technology, is a federation of 28 professional and technical societies representing these fields. You may learn more about ABET on the organization's web site. You may also view the 2008-09 ABET EAC Criteria for Accrediting Engineering Programs to read the requirements that engineering programs must meet to become accredited.
The information here is organized according to the ABET EAC (Engineering Accreditation Commission) self-study report template, which includes:
Criterion 9 describes the requirements for specialized fields of engineering, such as chemical, mechanical or electrical engineering. Since there are no specific program criteria for Paper Science and Engineering, no supporting documentation is presented here.
