The United States Military Academy (USMA) will have seven of its programs undergo a joint review by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) and the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). Evaluating all seven programs simultaneously allows synergy, but it necessitates coordination at the institutional level, and requires the support and cooperation of nonreviewed programs. The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science will have both programs reviewed, by the EAC and CAC, respectively. There are many similarities and differences between the two, requiring internal controls, timelines, and processes to ensure correct completion of the requirements. Course directors and other faculty need guidance in preparing for the visit, managing additional administrative loads during the record year, and in understanding how assessment improves their programs. Although all of the areas mentioned above are discussed in the context of the USMA, they should prove useful to any institution preparing for an ABET visit.
