Engineering Science Accreditation Statement
Loyola University Chicago’s Engineering Science program is in its fifth year of planning for ABET accreditation. Loyola’s highly structured curriculum and program meet and/or exceed the ABET Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) General Criteria.
Accreditation evaluation is a two-year process. Per ABET requirements, Loyola University conducted a readiness review towards initial accreditation in October, 2018. In January, 2019, in anticipation of students graduating from the program in May, 2019, we requested our initial accreditation evaluation during the 2019-20 cycle. Once approved, our accreditation will cover all of our Engineering Classes, starting with the Class of 2019.
Software Engineering, which is housed in Computer Science, is not seeking ABET accreditation.
