      Widener’s bachelor engineering programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET).

      Widener University's bachelor degree programs in biomedical, chemical, civil, electrical and mechanical engineering have been accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET), the global accreditor of college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering and engineering technology. This is the first time Widener's biomedical engineering program has been evaluated.

      The ABET accreditation ensures that the programs meet standards to produce graduates ready to enter critical technical fields leading the way in innovation as well as emerging technologies and anticipating the welfare and safety needs of the public.

      "Widener engineering has a proud 154-year history of preparing thousands of engineering students for successful careers in business, academia and government. With the new biomedical engineering program now joining the previously ABET-accredited chemical, civil, electrical and mechanical engineering programs, Widener offers students a wider range of exciting options," said Dr. Fred Akl, dean of the School of Engineering. "I congratulate our outstanding faculty and staff for their achievement in continuing to meet the highest standards in engineering education."

      ABET's voluntary peer-review process is highly respected worldwide because it adds critical value to academic programs in the technical disciplines where quality, precision and safety are of the utmost importance.
      Developed by technical professionals from ABET's member societies, ABET criteria focus on what students experience and learn. ABET accreditation reviews look at program curricula, faculty, facilities and institutional support and are conducted by teams of highly skilled professionals from industry, academia and government with expertise in the ABET disciplines.
