ABET Accreditation

The undergraduate programs in electrical engineering and computer engineering at UIC have been accredited since 2001 by ABET, the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, and its predecessor organizations.

Our department’s undergraduate program in engineering physics has been accredited by the IBHE, the Illinois Board of Higher Education. The department is in the process of applying for ABET accreditation of this program, in line with a national trend of engineering schools beginning to seek ABET status for engineering physics programs.

ABET is the recognized accreditor for college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering, and technology. It is a federation of 28 professional and technical societies representing these fields. Among the most respected accreditation organizations in the United States, ABET has provided leadership and quality assurance in higher education for more than 75 years.
