How Does Accreditation.org Use Cookies?

A "cookie" is a small file that we save on your computer’s hard drive that contains non-personal information. Our cookies help to give you faster access to webpages you have already visited. We also use cookies to help us figure out how many people visit our website, which of our webpages they stop at and how long they stay there.

About Accredited Program Listings

Accreditation.org attempts to provide a continually updated directory of accredited engineering, engineering technology, and computing degree programs throughout the world. Included programs have been identified as accredited by a recognized accrediting body, but are subject to error. We only include listings that have been accredited specifically at the degree level, which is different from institutional accreditation. We also only include fully accredited programs, not those with a provisional status. We annually refresh data for each country, so there is a possibility of a change in accreditation status during any given year, as accreditation is a year-round process. Our website users should reconfirm accreditation status directly from the university and accrediting body before embarking on a degree program, hiring an employee, or for any other reason. We attempt to be comprehensive but errors and omissions may occur.

What Policies Apply to Sites that Accreditation.org Links to?

The Accreditation.org website may contain links to other third party websites. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of those other websites to understand what information they may collect from you and how they may use it.
