Undergraduate Program Accreditation
The College of Engineering and Mines currently has six undergraduate engineering degree programs. The following programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, Inc., 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012 – telephone (410) 347-7700.
• Chemical Engineering (B.S.Ch.E.)
• Civil Engineering (B.S.C.E.)
• Electrical Engineering (B.S.E.E.)
• Geological Engineering (B.S.Geo.E.)
• Mechanical Engineering (B.S.M.E.)
In 2010, the State Board of Higher Education approved a new undergraduate degree program in petroleum engineering. The College of Engineering and Mines expects to seek ABET accreditation for this program as soon as the program is eligible.
Distance Engineering Degree Program
The College of Engineering and Mines currently offers four of our engineering degree programs (chemical, civil, electrical, and mechanical) through a distance delivery mode called our Distance Engineering Degree Program (DEDP). Our DEDP delivery mode offers non-traditional engineering students an opportunity to complete most of their undergraduate degree coursework in our accredited undergraduate engineering programs through the internet. Students are required to complete their laboratory requirements through accelerated summer courses at UND. Since our DEDP students experience the same lectures and coursework requirements as our on campus students, we consider this education experience to be essentially equivalent.
