The Importance of
Program Accreditation

K. Jamie Rogers, Ph.D., P.E.
Professor & Associate Chair
Industrial & Manufacturing Systems Engineering
UT Arlington

So you're having a hard time landing your first job after receiving your degree from Harold's School of Hair Restoration and Engineering. Your problem is probably because Harold's programs aren't recognized as meeting accepted engineering education standards. The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that evaluates and accredits college and university programs in the disciplines of applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology.

In this presentation, Dr. Rogers, the current President-Elect of ABET, gives a brief overview of the organization, describes the value institutions receive from accreditation and explains how faculty members can become ABET program evaluators.

Jamie Rogers received her B.S. degree from The University of Missouri at Columbia and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from UT Arlington, all in industrial engineering. Prior to joining UT Arlington in 1994, she worked at Texas Instruments in various engineering and management positions in defense electronics and semiconductor business areas. Professor Rogers has successfully supervised 27 Ph.D. dissertations, published more than 130 peer-reviewed papers and continues to work with many prior students who are now working in industry or teaching at respected universities around the world. In 2012, she was named a University of Texas System Regents' Outstanding Teacher and recently was nominated to become a Fellow of the Institute of Industrial Engineers. She is a registered Professional Engineer in Texas.
