GT’s CM and Threads are ABET Accredited

We got word that both of our undergraduate degrees at Georgia Tech’s College of Computing have been accredited by ABET.  This may be of interest beyond Georgia Tech for a couple of reasons.

  • The accreditation of our BS in Computer Science is the first since we adopted the Threads model for our curriculum.  That was probably the most common question I got when we presented Threads at SIGCSE: “But will ABET accredit that?”  The answer is “Yes.”
  • ABET now has “Computing” accreditation criteria, as something more general than “Computer Science.”  Our BS in Computational Media meets those criteria.  It’s a positive move for ABET to open up its criteria to “Computing” more generally, and we’re pleased that our CM degree was recognized as meeting those criteria.
