AUM’s College of Engineering and Technology Achieves ABET for its Mechanical Engineering Program

The American University of the Middle East B.Sc. degree program in Mechanical Engineering has been 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.

ABET accreditation assures that programs meet standards to produce graduates ready to enter critical technical fields that are leading the way in innovation and emerging technologies, and anticipating the welfare and safety needs of the public.

AUM announced that this is a solid recognition for the university’s endeavors and commitment to adhere to the best international standards and provide the best for its students at all levels.  In addition, achieving ABET accreditation is highly important to students in regard to having better opportunities when they want to enter the corporate world or continue with their higher studies.

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.

Developed by technical professionals from ABET’s member societies, ABET criteria focus on what students experience and learn. ABET accreditation reviews look at program curricula, faculty, facilities, and institutional support and are conducted by teams of highly skilled professionals from industry, academia, and government, with expertise in the ABET disciplines.
