Auburn's Textile Program Receives ABET Accreditation

Auburn University, Auburn, Ala., has announced that its Textile Engineering program has been accredited for six years by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).

This completed the accreditation process that was begun in 1992.

Auburn becomes the third textile engineering program to receive ABET accreditation, joining N.C. State University, Raleigh, N.C., and Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta.

ABET accreditation is a non-governmental peer review process that ensures educational quality in the United States. ABET currently accredits approximately 2,300 engineering, engineering technology and engineering-related programs at more than 500 colleges and universities in the United States.

ABET is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditations (CHEA) for its responsibility in these areas.

Non-U.S. educational institutions can also seek ABET accreditation.
