    Session Information:

    The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET)┬ásets the minimum standards that all the departments in a college of engineering must meet for accreditation. The various engineering disciplines have some form of body of knowledge (BOK) that informs ABET of needed academic requirements. Every eight years ASCE establishes an ad hoc committee to update the Civil Engineering BOK to capture emerging educational needs. The committee started in October and must finish by September 2018. A key part of the committee’s work is outreach and seeking stakeholders’ input. This educational session offers an opportunity to present to stakeholders and request feedback at the mid-point of the process.
