Participation in the accreditation process is a major responsibility of the IEEE. The IEEE Educational Activities Board (EAB) is responsible for carrying out the accreditation process with Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) for engineering and engineering technology programs within the United States. ABET is a federation of 28 engineering, professional and technical societies and is recognized by the Council on Higher Education (CHEA) to accredit programs in engineering, engineering technology, computing science, and applied science programs within the United States. The IEEE is the largest Member society of ABET and is responsible for more than 700 engineering and engineering technology programs through ABET. The IEEE EAB also participates in international accreditation activities. Detailed information about accreditation and other educational activities of the IEEE is available at http://www.ieee.org/web/education/.
