ABET Accreditation

ACU’s undergraduate engineering program has been accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET for college and university programs in applied 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.

Once you graduate from ACU with a Bachelor of Science in Engineering, you will be equipped to work in a number of engineering positions.

Program Educational Objectives

The ACU engineering program strongly supports the university’s mission of educating students for Christian service and leadership throughout the world. In support of the university mission and in response to the needs of program constituents, the Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) are that within a few years of graduation:

  1. Alumni are succeeding in engineering practice or other diverse fields that value analytical, problem solving and professional practice skills.
  2. Alumni are engaging in lifelong learning that builds upon foundational knowledge acquired in their undergraduate education through graduate study, career-specific or other professional training.
  3. Alumni are glorifying God through thoughtful integration of work and life-facilitating service to others through their profession.

Learning Outcomes

The following student outcomes will prepare ACU engineering students to attain the program educational objectives:

  • an ability to identify, formulate and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science and mathematics;
  • an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental and economic factors;
  • an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  • an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental and societal contexts;
  • an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks and meet objectives;
  • an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions;
  • an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
