The undergraduate degree program offered by the Environmental Engineering Department of METU has been accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology), http://www.abet.org.
The BS program in environmental engineering was the first environmental engineering program in Turkey to be evaluated by an international accreditation agency. In 2002, the BS program in environmental engineering obtained substantial equivalency from ABET, after an evaluation by the International Activities Committee. From 2007 onwards, the BS program in environmental engineering was accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
ABET states that “Graduates from an ABET-accredited program have a solid educational foundation and are capable of leading the way in innovation, emerging technologies, and in anticipating the welfare and safety needs of the public.” (http://www.abet.org/accreditation/why-abet-accreditation-matters/).
