Developing a self-study to submit for program accreditation review can be a daunting task. It requires academic programs to step back and look at their educational process with a critical eye. Administrators often look for outside guidance on ways to improve their process and to best present their approach to developing strong student learners. The authors of this paper are engineering technology administrators with many years of experience leading successful program accreditation visits. The paper will present the most common shortcomings identified during engineering technology program review. In addition, the authors will share tips and best practices to assist educators in developing robust continuous improvement processes that will meet rigorous accreditation requirements. The paper will include suggestions for program planning throughout the accreditation life-cycle.
