As the result of the accreditation review by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET in fall 2017, the Bachelor of Science degrees in Engineering and Bioengineering have been granted accreditation for the first time. Bioengineering graduated its first cohort in the Spring of 2016 and has grown to a class size of more than 275 enrolled students in the 2017-18 academic year. The Engineering program, with 139 enrolled students in 17-18, is a multi-disciplinary program that allows students to gain a unique perspective on engineering.
The rest of the Bachelor's degree programs in engineering offered by Temple University's College of Engineering have been reaccredited. This includes programs in Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. The accredited Bachelor of Science programs in Engineering Technology and Construction Engineering Technology are undergoing accredication review by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commision of ABET during the 2018-2019 academic year. The new Environmental Engineering BS program will be seeking retro-active accreditation in the next cycle after it has graduated its first students.
ABET evaluates programs for accreditation every six years. The process includes preparing a self-study for each program and a three-day visit from a team of experts from around the world.
