Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET)

The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) was established in 1932 in the United States. It accredits programs in applied and natural science, computing, engineering and engineering technology. Today ABET standards continue to play fundamental role and have become the basis of quality for STEM disciplines all over the world. More than 2,200 experts from industry, higher education and government are working on the evaluation. 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. To date, it has accredited over 4,100 programs at 812 colleges and universities in 32 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. ABET’s voluntary peer-review process is highly respected because it adds critical value to academic programs in the technical disciplines, where quality, precision and safety are of the utmost significance.

In September 2018, TUL submitted readiness review reports for 2 programs conducted in English: Computer Science oraz Information Technology.

ABET accreditations are financed by the Ministry of Education and Science as part of the POWER project "International accreditations". The aim of the project is obtaining international  accreditations and certificates by Polish HEIs, increasing the international competitiveness of universities. Co-financing of the project from EU funds is 84.28%, the remaining funds come from the state budget.
