What is ABET Accreditation?

Accreditation is value. Reaching into our public, private, and professional lives, accreditation is proof that a collegiate program has met certain standards necessary to produce graduates who are ready to enter their professions.

Accreditation Impacts:

  • Students
  • Programs and Institutions
  • Professionals in Business, Industry, and Government
  • Public

ABET is an integral part of each of these areas because it accredits over 4,005  applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology programs at more than 793 colleges and universities in 32 countries worldwide. Over 100,000 students graduate from ABET-accredited programs each year.

State Requirements

Licensure Information

Engineering does not require licensure to practice, however; Liberty University’s program prepares students for the FE exam; the first step in optional licensure.

The Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam is generally your first step in the process to becoming a professional licensed engineer (P.E.). It is designed for recent graduates and students who are close to finishing an undergraduate engineering degree from an EAC/ABET-accredited program. The FE exam is a computer-based exam administered year-round at NCEES-approved Pearson VUE test centers.

Prospective students should be aware that each state has different professional licensure and certification requirements governing various occupations. Liberty University works to confirm if its educational programs meet the educational prerequisites for professional licensure or certification outside the Commonwealth of Virginia and updates this information each year. Students who plan to pursue licensure outside the Commonwealth of Virginia should be aware that state licensure requirements are subject to changes. Students are ultimately responsible for verifying their individual eligibility for state licensure and satisfying any requirements imposed thereby. While a program may originally meet the educational requirements for licensure, changes in requirements could impact the program’s ability to meet any new educational requirements.  Students are strongly encouraged to check with their state licensure board to confirm licensure requirements and obtain additional guidance as needed from the respective licensure board.

Location Change

At any time you may notify us of a location change that could affect your licensure disclosure information. We require that you provide us official notification by completing the State Change Notification form. Any address changes done through your myLU portal will not be considered an official address change and will not generate an updated disclosure.
