Accreditation

The Mechanical and Materials Engineering undergraduate degree program is accredited by Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, and the graduate degree programs are accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU). The MME Department is guided by a group of constituents who review our educational objectives and expected program outcomes. The educational objectives are those objectives we want our graduates to attain 3-5 years after graduation. Program outcomes are expected outcomes at graduation from our programs.
