The new Bachelor of Science in Petroleum Engineering degree is designed for accreditation by ABET. ABET is responsible for the specialized accreditation of educational programs in: applied science computing engineering technology
ABET follows a 6-year accreditation cycle, which requires UND to complete the following steps before receiving accreditation:
Because the Petroleum Engineering major is new as of Fall 2010, UND has begun the steps, but not yet completed, the ABET accreditation process.
Similar to all of UNDs engineering degrees, it is anticipated that the program will be accredited by ABET during its next cycle. If ABET accreditation is obtained, it is retroactive for all graduates of UNDs Petroleum Engineering program.
The University of North Dakota as a whole is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. UND has been accredited since 1913, when the Association was first organized.
Accreditation assures the quality of higher education institutions and programs. In the United States, accreditation is a voluntary, non-governmental, peer-review process that determines if established quality standards are being met.
