This paper describes a new model and way of thinking about the process of assessing and evaluating engineering education programs for accreditation, and the way that data is used and shared. The proposed model provides a construct that can be used to think about how best to respond to the opportunity to re-design, re-configure and re-engineer current processes.
As a pilot of the model, data has been extracted from 37 ABET EAC industrial engineering program self-study reports (SSRs) submitted for evaluation over the past couple of accreditation cycles. Data is collected across the ABET evaluation criteria for each program and organized to recognize best practices and benchmarks, as well as demonstrate ideas associated with the proposed model.
