University of Wisconsin Madison College of Engineering

 

Degree accreditation (ABET)

 

Our programs in engineering mechanics and nuclear engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,
http://www.abet.org.

 

The Department of Engineering Physics has not sought ABET accreditation for the engineering physics undergraduate degree because it is intended for those who plan to go on to graduate studies and/or a research-related career. Although the lack of ABET accreditation does not preclude one from obtaining professional licensing, the process is somewhat longer in most states that license professional engineers.

 

You can verify our ABET accreditation by visiting:
