Accreditation, Recognition, and Certification



Accreditation

 

Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS)

The University of Alabama at Birmingham is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award baccalaureate, masters, doctorate, and professional degrees. Click HERE for additional information on UAB accreditation.

Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET

Typically, graduate programs in Engineering are not EAC/ABET accredited. ABET accreditation of the ASEM concentration of the Masters of Engineering Program through the EAC would require either (1)  only accepting students from accredited engineering undergraduate degree programs or (2)  requiring students without an accredited engineering undergraduate degree to take extensive baccalaureate-level coursework.   

The ASEM Master of Engineering Program will not pursue ABET accreditation due to the diverse backgrounds of its students.

Applied Science Accreditation Commission (ASAC) of ABET

We are not eligible to apply for accreditation through the Applied Science Accreditation Commission because the degree name is Master of  Engineering. The Applied Sciences Division will not review any engineering program.


Recognition


American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE)

ASEM is recognized in ASSE’s Academic Program Directory.


Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP)

ASEM is recognized in BCSP’s Academic Program Directory.



Certification


Certified Safety Professional® (CSP®) certification

UAB’s Master of Engineering in ASEM satisfies the academic requirement for the CSP certification.

Graduate Safety Practitioner (GSP) program

GSP applicants are required to have a bachelor’s or master’s degree from a program holding safety accreditation by ABET’s Applied Science Accreditation Commission.   UAB’s Master of Engineering in ASEM does not satisfy that requirement (see ABET information above).
