The IISE Accreditation Advisory Council again will sponsor a workshop at the IISE Annual Conference & Expo to help industrial engineering and industrial engineering technology department chairs and assessment coordinators prepare for upcoming ABET accreditation visits. The session will focus on assembling documentation and making arrangements in advance of an accreditation visit, with a specific emphasis on industrial engineering program criteria.

The workshop is scheduled for 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. May 31 as a session during the conference, which will be held May 31 - June 2, 2020.

The session can accommodate up to 50 people, and pre-registration is required. To pre-register, email Bonnie Cameron at  bcameron@iise.org.

In the United States, accreditation is a nongovernmental, peer-reviewed process that ensures educational quality. Educational institutions volunteer to undergo periodic review to determine if certain criteria are being met. Accreditation is not a ranking system. It is assurance that a program or institution meets established quality standards.
