ABET Accreditation

Our Program is Accredited

The B.S. in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering degree program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

As part of ABET accreditation, a program must describe its educational objectives (the career and professional accomplishments that the program is preparing graduates to achieve), and its program outcomes (what students are expected to know or be able to do by the time of graduation from the program).
