GT’s CM and Threads are ABET Accredited

October 6, 2010 at 8:33 am 4 comments

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.
