Cooperative Education Survey - ABET "Attributes of an Engineer"

Beginning in the year 2000, the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology began using a new set of criteria to assess the effectiveness of all Engineering programs for accreditation purposes. In the past , the emphasis has been on each engineering curriculum containing certain courses. The emphasis is now on student learning outcomes. Engineering programs must now demonstrate that their graduates have these eleven "Attributes of an Engineer". Please complete and return this survey to assess how well your education is preparing you regarding the "Attributes of an Engineer".
