What about the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) Accreditation?

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

The CEM Master of Engineering is not ABET accredited because of the limitations defined above.
