uinnipiac’s civil, industrial, mechanical and software engineering programs have earned accreditation from the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

ABET, previously known as the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, is the global standard-setter for college and university programs in computing and engineering. The recognition marks a major achievement for the School of Engineering, illustrating its growth and continued commitment to advancing engineering education and practice.

“Earning ABET accreditation for our engineering programs is an important milestone as we continue to develop and grow our School of Engineering,” said Justin Kile, dean of the School of Engineering. “This ensures that our students have a solid foundation to build their careers.”

The accreditation confirms that the School of Engineering’s programs already comply with the highest educational standards.

Hands-on learning

The accreditation confirms that the School of Engineering’s programs already comply with the highest educational standards. Here, civil engineering students test fiber-reinforced bowling balls.

For alumni, the accreditation retroactively adds an even deeper layer of value to their education. For mechanical engineering graduate Allyson Coffee ‘17, it punctuates something she learned first-hand: the School of Engineering provides an exceptional learning experience.

“I got so much more than just an understanding of engineering principles and practices here,” said Coffee, who was part of the School of Engineering’s first graduating class. “I just know how important my role as an engineer is in society.”

Coffee, who works on submarines at The Portsmouth Naval Ship Yard in Kittery, Maine, recalls the relative ease with which she passed her Fundamentals of Engineering exam, the first of two examinations engineers must pass in order to become licensed as a Professional Engineer.
