ABET Accreditation

ABET is a national accrediting agency that sets standards for and evaluates the quality of educational programs in the fields of engineering and technology. Find out why accreditation is important.

The following programs at LeTourneau University are currently accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, https://www.abet.org:

ABET EAC Logo

• Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering

• Bachelor of Science in Engineering

Includes Biomedical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, and Materials Joining Concentrations

 

NEW: BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN ELECTRICAL AND COMPUTER ENGINEERING

INCLUDES ELECTRICAL, COMPUTER, AND MECHATRONICS CONCENTRATIONS

  • The Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering is a new program and will be seeking ABET accreditation following the first graduating class of BSEC students in 2021 (to apply retroactively to 2021 graduates). Contact the electrical and computer engineering department for more information about this new program.

 

NEW: Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering

Includes Environmental Concentration

  • The Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering is a new program and will be seeking ABET accreditation following the first graduating class of BSCE students in 2021 (to apply retroactively to 2021 graduates). Contact the civil engineering department for more information about this new program.

 

Degrees through the School of Engineering and Engineering Technology, like all LETU degrees, are also regionally accredited.


Program Educational Objectives

Based upon input from our constituents, the educational objectives for the engineering and mechanical engineering programs are the following:

  1. LeTourneau graduates will successfully enter the engineering profession or will pursue graduate education in engineering or related fields.
  2. LeTourneau graduates will continue professional development throughout their careers.
  3. LeTourneau graduates will engage the global dimensions of their profession.

Student Outcomes

The intended student outcomes for the engineering and mechanical engineering programs are that graduates will have:

  • SO1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  • SO2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  • SO3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  • SO4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  • SO5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  • SO6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  • SO7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
