ABET Accredited KU-ME BS Degree


The Mechanical Engineering Bachelor of Science program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. Most employers demand that their graduated engineers have ABET accredited degrees; and almost all employers prefer this. The ABET website shows the stringent requirements needed for accreditation. Accreditation review occurs every six (6) years; so all ABET accredited degrees are current within that timeframe. ABET is supported in its efforts by all major universities (KU included) and by all of the engineering professional societies, American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) included.

As stated in the Transfer Section, any outside-KU higher level engineering courses planned for transfer to KU-ME must come from ABET accredited ME programs, in order to successfully transfer.
