Accreditation

The Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, Inc., 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, Telephone: (410) 347-7700 accredits engineering programs on a nationwide basis. ABET accreditation provides assurance that a college or university program meets the quality standards established by the profession for which the program prepares its students.

Baccalaureate engineering programs in Computing Engineering and Electrical Engineering are accredited by EAC. The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering has started new online delivery paths for Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering degrees. ABET has confirmed that although these programs are not among those listed as 100% online accredited programs at https://www.abet.org/accreditation/find-programs/, the accreditation for those programs is covered by the existing accreditation for Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering. The 100% online pathways will be formally reviewed as part of reaccreditation during our next general review in 2022-23.

All academic programs of Florida International University are approved by the Florida Board of Education, the FIU Board of Trustees and the Florida Board of Governors. The university is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award baccalaureate, master’s, and doctoral degrees.
