Fort Wayne, Ind. – Indiana Tech has earned accreditation from ABET for its bachelor’s degree programs in biomedical engineering and electrical engineering.
ABET is a non-profit organization, previously known as the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, which accredits collegiate programs in applied science, computing, engineering and engineering technology.
This is the first time ABET has accredited the biomedical engineering program, which was launched at Indiana Tech in 2005. For the electrical engineering program, this is an accreditation renewal; the program first earned ABET accreditation in 1996.
The mechanical engineering program also is accredited by ABET, but it was not due for review yet.
ABET accreditation refers to specific degree programs. Indiana Tech, as a whole, is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
