Chattanooga, TN — Chattanooga State’s Chemical Engineering Technology program recently received a full six-year accreditation with no findings by the Accreditation Board for Engineering Technology (ABET). This accomplishment affirms the high academic standards established and demonstrated by Chattanooga State faculty in the WACKER Institute and Engineering Systems Technology department.
“ABET is the golden standard for engineering technology in the United States, but also recognized internationally through the Mutual Recognition Agreements – in this case, the Dublin Accord,” states Tim McGhee, dean of the Engineering Technology division.
ABET is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization that accredits college and university programs in the disciplines of applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology. Having accredited more than 3,300 programs in more than 680 colleges and universities spanning 24 countries, ABET accreditation assures that a college or university program meets the quality standards for which the program prepares its students.
The visitation team was extremely impressed by and complimentary of the entire Chattanooga State campus community, placing special emphasis on the senior leadership team, math & science departments, student services, and library services.
