International Engineering Education Accreditation


Education accreditation can not only help ensure quality of programs but also provide a mechanism for continuous improving assessment. Therefore, more and more countries have their own institutes to accredit engineering programs. Since 1997, ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, U.S.A.) has adopted new outcome-based accreditation criteria called EC2000. How to meet the requirements of the criteria and to implement the outcome-based criteria is a crucial issue for engineering faculty. On the other hand, based on substantially equivalent criteria, several countries singed the Washington Accord, an agreement between signatory countries. The main purpose of Washington Accord is to strengthen the quality assurance of engineering programs and encourage the international cooperation between signatories with accredited programs. In this session, papers related to the following areas are welcome.


    Program outcomes and assessment;

    Criteria development and implementation;

    Washington Accord and international cooperation;

    Other topics related to engineering education accreditation.
