Indiana Tech’s computer engineering program is the latest to earn ABET accreditationSeptember 29, 2022
The number of Indiana Tech degree programs accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET—the global accreditor of college and university programs in applied and natural science, computing, engineering and engineering technology—has reached four.
Indiana Tech’s Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering earned ABET accreditation for the first time ever, while three other Tech bachelor’s degree programs —biomedical engineering, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering—retained their previously earned accreditation. ABET affirmed the recognition in a statement presented to the university and its Talwar College of Engineering and Computer Sciences in early-September. All four programs will retain accreditation through Sept. 30, 2028.
Accreditation from ABET assures that degree programs meet standards to produce graduates who are ready to enter critical technical fields that are leading the way in innovation and emerging technologies.
The announcement comes at a time of great momentum for the university’s Talwar College of Engineering and Computer Sciences as its Zollner Engineering Center expansion and renovation project moves forward. The $21.5 million project is approximately a year away from completion. When finished, Zollner will be brand new and nearly double in size, giving students an inspiring and innovative learning environment to explore new and existing programs in engineering, computer sciences, cybersecurity, life sciences and technology.
