Accreditation recognizes academic programs that meet stringent criteria. This helps students and employers know that the university is providing a solid background in preparation for a career or future study.
ABET focuses on academic programs in the disciplines of applied and natural science, computing, engineering and engineering technology - and has accredited over 3,000 programs around the world.
Six of the engineering degrees at the University of Mississippi are currently accredited by ABET, with a further two in progress (B.S. Biomedical, B.S. Engineering).
