The accreditation by the IEET is a non-government, peer-reviewed process with a learning-outcome based orientation. The purpose is to determine if a degree-granting program meets certain standards of quality. IEET accreditation is a voluntary process. The accredited status is not permanent, but has to be renewed every six years to demonstrate that the IEET accreditation criteria are still met.
IEET accreditation applies to bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees programs offered by universities recognized by the Taiwan Ministry of Education.
Since 2004, IEET has been involved in the accreditation of engineering, computing, technical, and architectural education.
IEET accreditation is not a ranking system, but a process through which to ensure that a program continues to achieve its own educational objectives, i.e. that its students have attained the required outcomes by graduation. IEET encourages each program to establish its own characteristics. A valid accreditation certificate declares to the relevant professional community and to the world at large, that the program meets the quality standards set by the profession.
