The School of Engineering at the University of Jordan (UJ) has received the decision of the ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) to renew accreditation for its seven engineering programs, for a period of six years, that is until September 2028.
This came after a delegation from the ABET evaluation accreditation commission conducted an evaluation of the seven engineering programs in November last year.
The programs were seen as applying international accreditation standards approved in engineering education, including study plans, descriptions of materials, teaching methods, the school's infrastructure, and qualifications and academic ranks of faculty members, services provided to students, and performance of students or graduates in the labor market.
The seven programs that received ABET's international accreditation are the BSc. in Civil, Mechanical, Industrial, Mechatronics, Electrical, Chemical and Computer Engineering.
ABET accreditation guarantees that the programs meet standards to turn out competent graduates ready to enter the engineering workforce.
