The Gokongwei College of Engineering underwent ABET accreditation last October 28-30, 2018. The Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET) accreditation provides assurance that the program meets the quality standards established by the profession. This non-profit organization is based in the US and is run by professional organizations. The focus of ABET is not on compliance but on continuous improvement. Furthermore, ABET is the foremost international accrediting body of college and university programs in applied and natural science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology.

ABET accreditation is important because it is a proof that a collegiate program has met standards essential to produce graduates ready to enter their respective fields. Graduates from an ABET-accredited program have a solid educational foundation and are capable of leading the way in innovation, emerging technologies, and in anticipating the welfare and safety needs of the public.
