SUNY Poly’s programs in Civil Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering are currently seeking ABET accreditation. Until these programs are accredited, graduates are not eligible to receive maximum education/experience credits as a “professional engineering program” towards New York State licensure in professional engineering. ABET does not allow programs to apply for accreditation until they have graduated at least one student. ABET does allow the accreditation to cover students who graduated in the year before the accreditation is granted.

See www.abet.org/new_program.shtml for more information about the ABET accreditation process.
