The Biomedical Engineering is currently accredited by ABET’s Engineering Accreditation Commission. The Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET) is a well-known nonprofit, nongovernmental agency that accredits programs in applied science, computing, engineering and technology. The standard ABET sets and the quality it has guaranteed for more than 80 years inspires confidence in those who aim to build a better world — one that is safer, more efficient, more comfortable and more sustainable.

Why ABET Accreditation Matters?

A quality education makes a difference for your professional future. Graduates from an ABET-accredited program have a solid educational foundation and are capable of leading the way in innovation, emerging technologies, and in anticipating the welfare and safety needs of the public. The quality of education you receive makes a big difference in your career success.

ABET accreditation:

- Verifies that your educational experience meets the global standard for technical education in your profession.

- Enhances your employment opportunities—multinational corporations require graduation from an accredited program.

- Supports your entry to a technical profession through licensure, registration and certification—all of which often require graduation from an ABET-accredited program as a minimum qualification.

- Establishes your eligibility for many federal student loans, grants, and/or scholarships.

- Paves the way for you to work globally, because ABET accreditation is recognized worldwide through international agreements, and many other countries’ national accrediting systems are based on the ABET model.
