The College of Engineering successfully hosted a two-day Workshop on “Roadmap for ABET accreditation at the College of Engineering”

The College of Engineering of the National University of Science and Technology successfully hosted a two-day Workshop on “Roadmap for ABET accreditation at the College of Engineering” from 28th - 29th January 2020. The College of Engineering under the National University, continuously strives to receive input from industry and its stakeholders in order to develop a new suite of programs to enhance Learning and Teaching strategies. In this regard,a new suite of BEng programs was designed to comply with the requirements of Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, ABET and introduced from September 2019. Seeking an accreditation in engineering education such as (ABET) is a common practice among universities to improve their purpose as a focus for academic merit. The College of Engineering strongly believes that seeking and preparing for ABET accreditation will not only reaffirm the college’s reputation in the region as but will also aid in the continuous improvement of the academic qualities towards serving its program constituencies. Accreditation of education program is the recognition of an outside organization about the quality of a training program or a training organization. Accreditation is the recognition of an external organization about the education quality of a program or an educational organization ABET is an organization that accredits the quality of education programs in Engineering, Technology, Computing and Applied Science areas. ABET accreditation ensures that accredited educational programs satisfy the quality criteria defined by experts from professional associations. Enrolled in an ABET accredited program, students will have more opportunities to develop their personal careers after graduation as ABET is an internationally recognized organization, many companies have stated their priority to recruit graduates from ABET accredited programs. Further, ABET accredited programs ensure that the quality of the education program is globally recognized.

The College of Engineering at the National University of Science and Technology strongly believes that the success of engineering education in the region is attributed to a robust quality assurance and enhancement mechanism. To this effect, the university has developed its quality management system with the dedicated committee for Quality Assurance and Enhancement for the propose of strategic quality directives for the University.

This two-day workshop includes activities aimed at creating awareness about the need for programme accreditation and focused road map for training the staff of the college of engineering towards meeting the ABET accreditation for the new BEng Program in 2023. The workshop intended to broaden the understanding of staffs on the various criteria considered for ABET accreditation. This was workshop was delivered by the two eminent and experts in the region Prof. Tasneem Pervez & Associate Professor Amur Salim Al Yahmedi from the Sultan Qaboos University (SQU) Their rich knowledge and experiences was relevant and significantly added value to the workshop, The model for this workshop is based on the successful approaches used for the ABET accreditation at SQU.

The Workshop was inaugurated by the Dean of the College of Engineering Prof. Dr Ahmed Hassan Al Bulushi. Professor Ahmed in his welcome address said: “This workshop is organized in line with the strategic plans of the College of Engineering and also reiterates the commitment of the college in offering programs of international standards.” In his address, he emphasized the importance and benefits of getting the programmes accredited and the need for involving all program constituents in the process. Prof A Vallavaraj, Deputy Dean of the college, reflected on the commitment of the staff in ensuring continuous quality enhancement whilst confirming to the assurance procedures within the college. He also elaborated on the current status of the process and discussed the road map for ABET accreditation at the college of Engineering. Prof. Tasneem Pervez, the workshop facilitator, in his opening address explained the need for continuous improvement in Engineering Education & Quality Policies and emphasized that accreditation is now is not a choice but a necessity for sustaining any education institution.
