This workshop is based on Criterion 2: Program Educational Objectives and Criterion 3:
Students Outcomes used by ABET for accrediting engineering programs, in order to understand the existing relationship between the two criteria.

Topics Include:

  • Consistency between the PEO and the institutional mission
  • The importance of periodic review of the PEO
  • The articulation of PEOs with SO
  • Methods to assess and evaluate SO
