Welcome to Arkansas State University!

ABET accredits college and university programs in the disciplines of applied and natural science, computing, engineering and engineering technology at the associate, bachelor and master degree levels.

With ABET accreditation, students, employers and the society we serve can be confident that a program meets the quality standards that produce graduates prepared to enter a global workforce.

ABET began as the educational standard against which professional engineers in the United States were held for licensure. Today, after more than 80 years, ABET standards continue to play this fundamental role and have become the basis of quality for over 40 disciplines all over the world.

Developed by technical professionals from ABET’s member societies, the criteria focus on what students experience and learn. Sought worldwide, ABET’s voluntary peer-review process is highly respected because it adds critical value to academic programs in the technical disciplines, where quality, precision and safety are of the utmost importance.

ABET's more than 2,200 experts come from industry, academia and government. They give their time and effort supporting quality assurance activities around the world by serving as program evaluators, commissioners, board members and advisors.

ABET is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).

All undergraduate engineering programs at Arkansas State University (civil, electrical and mechanical) are accredited by ABET.
