15 KUST Engineering Academic Programs Receive International Accreditation

On July 12 on the website of the Ministry of Education a report titled “Nearly a thousand engineering academic programs from China receive international accreditation” said that by the end of 2017, 846 engineering academic programs of 198 higher education institutes had been accredited by the Higher Education Evaluation Center of the Ministry of Education and China Accreditation Engineering Education Association, accounting for 4.45% among over 19,000 engineering academic programs around the country. This means that the education quality of these engineering academic programs has won international recognition. A total of 15 engineering academic programs of KUST are among the list of the 846 programs, accounting for more than one-third of the total number of engineering programs of KUST. KUST ranks second for the number of engineering academic programs which have passed the accreditation across the country and ranks first in local higher education institutes in China.

As a university which started academic program accreditation earlier than other local universities, KUST deepens the development of engineering academic programs by promoting their international accreditation. KUST revises the educating objectives, reorganizes the course system, deepens classroom reforms, clarifies teachers' responsibilities, improves the evaluation system and guarantee of conditions according to the Washington Accord benchmark and Engineering Education Certification Standards of China. Boosted by the international accreditation, KUST has made great achievements in bachelor engineering degree education and the education quality has been remarkably improved. And for graduates from an accredited degree program, they will be able to compete on an equal footing with students from other countries/regions covered by the Washington Accord.
