Computer Science Program ABET Accredited (2017-2023)

On November 13 - 15, 2016, the Department of Computer Science and Engineering received a mission from the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) for the reaccreditation of the computer science program offered at AUC. The ABET team met with constituents from the program such as faculty, students, alumni and industrial board members, and examined the curriculum implementation and assessment methodology. The mission was completed successfully and the ABET team submitted its recommendation to reaccredit the program for six years (2017-2023) without any reservation. It is worth noting that this was a great achievement for the department, as getting reaccreditation without any concerns is no easy task.
