bachelor degree programs offered by the University of Jordan (UJ) in King
Abdullah II School of Information Technology (KASIT) have been accredited by the
Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) on the 1st
of October 2018.
Computer Science and Computer Information
Systems programs are both now accredited by ABET. KASIT is one of the few to
obtain this accreditation outside the US. Moreover, ABET accreditation means
that both programs meet the quality standards of the profession that produce
graduates who are prepared to enter a global workforce.
The criteria of ABET for accrediting computing
programs include the programs' educational objectives, curricula, student
performance, faculty, facilities, and institutional support. Continuous
improvement in the quality of education provided is a key element for ABET.
Through international accreditation, KASIT aims to increase professional and
educational opportunities for its students and graduates.
ABET is the accrediting body of college and
university programs in applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering
technology. It is a not-for-profit organization, owned and operated by more
than 30 professional and technical member societies. An internationally
respected organization with about 2,000 volunteers, ABET has set the
higher-educational standards in its fields for nearly 80 years.
