About Member Societies

ABET has 34 member societies; 30 members and four associate members.

Each of ABET's members has responsibility for an academic discipline within applied science, computing, engineering, or engineering technology at the postsecondary level. Members also participate in ABET leadership, including voting members of the ABET Board of Directors and as Accreditation Commissioners.

Associate members participate in and contribute to the ABET community but do not have Board of Director voting rights or participate in Accreditation Commission leadership.

Organizational characteristics of all ABET member societies typically include:

  • Active engagement in the dissemination of technical knowledge;
  • Demonstrated interest and capability in the accreditation process;
  • Substantial membership throughout the U.S. or employed graduates in the discipline. Many ABET member societies operate globally;
  • An organizational structure that includes an education component; and
  • Evidence the society speaks for the technical community it represents.
