The planned curriculum has been designed to satisfy the requirements necessary for ABET accreditation. However, an engineering program cannot apply for ABET accreditation until after the program has graduated its first class. Because Wake’s program is being planned with the class of 2021 in mind, we expect to apply for ABET accreditation in the year following the graduation of the class of 2021. Any program that earns ABET accreditation has the accreditation applied retroactively to the previous year’s class, i.e., to the class of 2021.
