A&M-Texarkana Electrical Engineering Program Reaccredited through the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology

TEXARKANA, Texas – Texas A&M University-Texarkana’s Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering has been reaccredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (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.

"ABET accreditation is the gold standard for Engineering and Technology programs internationally and a true exemplar of academic excellence for the University, "said A&M-Texarkana President Dr. Ross Alexander. "Meeting these rigorous standards ensures that A&M-Texarkana students are earning the highest quality Electrical Engineering degree. Therefore, our talented graduates are extremely attractive to employers and workforce ready on day one." 

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.

ABET is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization with ISO 9001:2015 certification. It currently accredits 4,564 programs at 895 colleges and universities in 40 countries and areas.
