SPIE Selected For Lead Role In Accreditation Program
October 7, 2010

The International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE) now has a lead role in establishing criteria for college and university degree-granting programs in optics and photonics, as the Society begins its first accreditation cycle as a member of ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology).

ABET, a federation of 30 professional and technical societies, acts as the recognized accreditor for college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering, and technology in the U.S.

Following ratification as a member society earlier this year, SPIE was designated the lead society for optics and photonics criteria related to curriculum and faculty for the ABET Applied Science Accreditation Commission, and will be co-lead with IEEE, Inc., for similar programs in the Engineering and Technology accreditation commissions.
