Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET)
The American Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) was established in 1932. On its initiative, the voluntary process of accreditation of engineering and technical programs was launched in the United States. Today, it is the most important and recognizable accreditation for technical universities in the USA among students and employers. More than 2,200 experts from industry, higher education and government are working on the evaluation of accredited courses. ABET is constantly improving its assessment criteria, ensuring their consistency with what is happening in the economy and the labour market. It is involved in many international activities supporting the process of accreditation of engineering education. It has accredited over 3800 programs in 31 countries around the world, including Europe. Most of the accreditation processes of current engineering programs around the world are based at least in part on ABET guidelines.
In September 2018, TUL submitted readiness review reports for 2 programs conducted in English: Computer Science oraz Information Technology, which have been positively evaluated.
