ABET Requirements

All engineering degree plans must satisfy the requirements specified by the ABET Commission. The course work
must include at least:

  • One year (32 SCH) of a combination of college level mathematics and basic sciences (some with
    experimental experience) appropriate to the discipline,
  • A general education component that complements the technical content of the curriculum and is consistent with
    the program and institution objectives-
  • One-half year (16 SCH) of humanities and social sciences,
  • One and one-half years (48 SCH) of engineering topics.

Major Design Experience- Students must be prepared for engineering practice through the curriculum culminating in a major design experience based on the knowledge and skills acquired in earlier course work and incorporating appropriate engineering standards and multiple realistic constraints.
