Project Summary

Engineering Programs Earn Reaccreditation

Four engineering programs at Penn State Behrend have been reaccredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, the recognized accreditor of university programs in applied science, computing, engineering and engineering technology. The college’s engineering technology programs also hold accreditation by ABET.

ABET accreditation is a voluntary peer-review process that evaluates program curricula, faculty expertise, facilities, institutional support and other factors.
