Engineering program accredited
Two engineering programs at Miami University, manufacturing engineering and paper science and engineering, have received outstanding reviews following a successful accreditation process.
"Accreditation is critical to recruiting top engineering students," said Don Byrkett, acting dean of Miami's School of Engineering and Applied Science. "We're very proud of both programs."
Both programs were accredited under new Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) guidelines that require documentation of the processes used to continually assess and improve programs. Paper science and engineering is the first program of its type to earn ABET accreditation in the country.
A team of six reviewers from ABET's Engineering Accreditation Commission came to campus last fall. Prior to that visit, faculty and staff worked with chairs to document the quality of their programs.
"It's been a real team effort involving many players, but Dave Haddad, former dean, deserves credit for his leadership in the accreditation process," said Byrkett.
