Accreditation for programs at the level of Professional Engineer

Information for program accreditation at the level of Professional Engineer.

Engineers Australia has developed an accreditation management system that includes the policies, criteria and guidelines for the accreditation of engineering education programs at the level of professional engineer.

This document is intended as a resource for engineering education providers in the processes of planning, educational design, program review and continuous quality improvement. It also is intended to provide 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 and for the Engineers Australia Accreditation Board in the process of decision making.

Accreditation system and context

One objective defined by the Engineers Australia Royal Charter is 'To increase the confidence of the community in the employment of engineers by admitting to The Institution only those persons as shall have satisfied the Council of The Institution that they have an adequate knowledge of both the theory and the practice of engineering'.

In accordance with this purpose, Engineers Australia evaluates complete courses or programs leading to the award of engineering degrees and diplomas by Australian educational institutions.

This documented accreditation system defines the criteria and processes for the evaluation of tertiary engineering programs leading to awards at the level of Professional Engineer.

Accreditation guidelines

The Accreditation Board's policies, procedures and guidelines are designed to ensure consistency in submissions from education providers and in the quality of the accreditation evaluation process itself. This procedure describes the preparation, control, storage and dissemination of controlled documents which are part of the accreditation system.

Policy

Policy is part of the system for engineering program accreditation managed by the Accreditation Board of Engineers Australia. The Accreditation Board's policies, procedures and guidelines are designed to ensure consistency in the submissions of educational bodies to the Accreditation Board, and in the quality of the assessment process itself.
