ABET has recently revised criteria related to Student Outcomes (Program Learning Outcomes) and the criteria now requires programs to have these outcomes verbatim. The programs seeking ABET accreditation during and after 2019 will be affected by this change, including programs that have been accredited by ABET under previous criteria and are now going for reaccreditation. This change in requirement for Student Outcome also impacts other general and program specific criterion. The programs preparing for accreditation or reaccreditation are being exposed to a complex situation. The questions on their mind are “How to address this change?”, “What sections of the self-study questionnaire will be impacted by this change?”, “What ABET evaluators will be looking for during their visit?”. During this presentation I plan to address some of these un-answered questions.
