Four programs gain full accreditation

Four of the Jerome J. Lohr College of Engineering’s key programs have received full reaccreditation from the ABET.

The Next General Review for agricultural and biosystems engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering is scheduled for 2027-28. Dean Sanjeev Kumar received the final statement from ABET in mid-January. The ABET visit was in September 2021.

Kumar said, “This recognition is a solid testimony of the excellent quality of all of our programs.”

Civil, electrical and mechanical are the greybeards of accreditation, each dating back to 1936. Agriculture and biosystems has been accredited since 1961, when it was agriculture engineering.

Kumar added, “Our established programs have a long history of accreditation. Gaining and maintaining accreditation for all our programs is important because it is the assurance that the programs offered by SDSU meet the quality standards for the profession. However, we continue to do more than what is minimum required for accreditation.”
