The Engineering Accreditation Board (EAB) facilitates joint degree accreditation visits involving several professional engineering institutions, where there is commonality between the degree programmes being considered. Five EAB accreditation visits have been undertaken so far in 2017 and five visits are scheduled for the spring of 2018. The Engineering Council provides the secretariat for EAB.
A university seeking accreditation for degrees where there is commonality between programmes may be interested in a joint institution visit, arranged by EAB. Universities are responsible for requesting accreditation and should do so well in advance. Accreditors’ diaries can fill up more than a year ahead, and it will take a number of months after a visit for an accreditation decision to be confirmed. It is important to note that accredited degrees taught from September 2016 must align with the current third edition of Accreditation of Higher Education Programmes (AHEP).
