Two Engineering Technology programs receive ABET accreditation

The University’s bachelor’s degree programs in Engineering Technology and Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology now have the added distinction of being accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, becoming the first ABET-accredited, http://www.abet.org, programs at BGSU.

ABET is a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization of technical professionals that accredits higher education programs in engineering and engineering technology, applied science, and computing. It is recognized as the worldwide leader in quality assurance for programs in those disciplines.

“It is expected that this accreditation will enable the first step in the journey toward an engineering career for many graduates,” said Dr. Venu Dasigi, interim dean of the College of Technology, Architecture, and Applied Engineering.
