Accreditation for programs at the level of Engineering Associate - competency based

Information for program accreditation at the level of Engineering Associate (competency based).

The Accreditation Management System (AMS), establishes the policy, criteria and guidelines for the accreditation of competency based engineering education programs at the level of Engineering Associate.

The AMS is intended as a resource for engineering education providers to assist with developing high quality courses, as well as a way to assess existing academic programs. It also provides explicit guidance for the development of submission documentation in preparation for an accreditation visit.

The accreditation management system provides the definitive criteria, assessment and reporting framework for evaluation panels engaged in the accreditation process.
