BALTIMORE, Maryland – The University of Mount Union is pleased to announce that its programs in biomedical engineering and computer engineering have earned accreditation from the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (https://www.abet.org).
All four majors in Mount Union’s School of Engineering are now accredited by ABET, with its programs in civil engineering and mechanical engineering earning initial accreditation in 2015.
“Receiving ABET accreditation for the biomedical engineering and computer engineering programs is a transformational step for the School of Engineering at the University of Mount Union into a comprehensive school with four ABET-accredited major programs,” said Dr. Chad Korach, associate professor and director of Mount Union’s School of Engineering. “We are grateful for the support of the institution and its dedication to educating engineers within a liberal arts-grounded university. We are so excited for the future of engineering at Mount Union!”
Mount Union started its first engineering programs in 2010 and expanded the engineering programs in 2018 to become a comprehensive School of Engineering focused on undergraduate education. The institution has five engineering programs with four-year B.S. degree majors in biomedical, civil, computer, and mechanical engineering and a minor in electrical engineering, and over 150 students taking engineering coursework annually.
Opportunities in experiential learning, competition teams, internships, and research projects are provided to students which have led to 100% job placement and acceptance in top-ranked engineering graduate programs. The school’s programs are centered around four pillars of excellence in engineering education – hands-on engineering; written and oral communication skills; entrepreneurial mindset and business skills; and global engineering, to prepare students for fulfilling lives, meaningful work and responsible citizenship.
