Program Evaluators

More than 2,200 program evaluators form the heart of ABET’s peer-based accreditation services. Representing one or more of ABET's 34 member societies, these professionals from academe, industry, and government volunteer their time and expertise to help assure quality in technical education.

Benefits of Volunteer Service

ABET program evaluators find the experience of serving on accreditation review and evaluation teams to be personally and professionally rewarding for a variety of reasons, including opportunities to:

  • Help assure that ABET accreditation criteria reflect contemporary practice and the expectations of the technical professions and their key constituents;
  • Gain insight into "best practices" and trends in technical education and the particular characteristics of individual schools and programs; and
  • Benefit from interaction and networking with committed peers.
