UTB engineering and computing programmes re-accredited by ABET
The Bachelor of Science in Mechatronics Engineering (BSME) and the Bachelor of Science in Informatics Engineering (BSIE) programmes of the University of Technology Bahrain (UTB) received full accreditation by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET) until September 30, 2028 following a rigorous inspection process including but not limited to teaching and learning, assessment, student support, stakeholders’ qualifications, facilities and laboratories, and partnerships among others underpinned by internationally recognised standards determined by ABET accrediting authorities.
It is worthy to recall that the UTB’s BSCS programme was first accredited in 2013 while its BSME and BSIE programmes were first accredited in 2015, which made UTB the first private university in the country to receive international ABET accreditation.
On this occasion, Dr. Hasan Almulla – President of UTB, proudly said that with this re-accreditation, students, employers and society are assured that these engineering and computing programmes meet established educational standards in preparing graduates to enter in the global workforce, and that the certificates of the graduates of these programmes will be treated with the same recognition with those graduates of international universities endorsed by ABET.
He also added that UTB upholds its dedication of providing high quality of learning, innovation and dissemination of knowledge through research-inspired teaching and enhancing the educational, economic, social and cultural prosperity of the community while inspiring more students and the future generations to come.More News
