Mason's Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering bachelor's degrees are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,

ABET accreditation is proof that a collegiate program has met standards essential to produce graduates ready to enter the critical fields of applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology. Graduates from an ABET-accredited program have a solid educational foundation and are capable of leading the way in innovation, emerging technologies, and in anticipating the welfare and safety needs of the public.

Accreditation Details

Goals and Objectives

Program educational objectives are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years of graduation. They are consistent with Mason's mission and the Engineering Criteria of ABET.

Within three to five years of students earning their degrees, graduates of the Computer Engineering and/or Electrical Engineering program are expected to have:

  • Established themselves as successful and productive engineering professionals or be engaged in advanced study, such as a graduate degree program.
  • Worked effectively in team environments and individually.
  • Fulfilled their responsibilities in the areas of ethics, continuing professional development, and effective communications.


ABET Student Outcomes prepare graduates to attain program educational objectives. They should have the ability to:

  1. Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. Apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. Communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. Recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
