Dear Dr. Perez :

The Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET recently held its 2018 Summer Meeting to
act on the program evaluations conducted during 2017-2018. Each evaluation was summarized in a
report to the Commission and was considered by the full Commission before a vote was taken on the
accreditation action. The results of the evaluation for University of Nebraska - Lincoln are included in the
enclosed Summary of Accreditation Actions. The Final Statement to your institution that discusses the
findings on which each action was based is also enclosed.

The policy of ABET is to grant accreditation for a limited number of years, not to exceed six, in all cases.
The period of accreditation is not an indication of program quality. Any restriction of the period of
accreditation is based upon conditions indicating that compliance with the applicable accreditation
criteria must be strengthened. Continuation of accreditation beyond the time specified requires a
reevaluation of the program at the request of the institution as noted in the accreditation action. ABET
policy prohibits public disclosure of the period for which a program is accredited. For further guidance
concerning the public release of accreditation information, please refer to Section II.A. of the 2017-2018
Accreditation Policy and Procedure Manual (available at www.abet.org).

A list of accredited programs is published annually by ABET. Information about ABET accredited
programs at your institution will be listed in the forthcoming ABET Accreditation Yearbook and on the
ABET web site (www.abet.org).

It is the obligation of the officer responsible for ABET accredited programs at your institution to notify
ABET of any significant changes in program title, personnel, curriculum, or other factors which could
affect the accreditation status of a program during the period of accreditation stated in Section II.H. of the
2017-2018 Accreditation Policy and Procedure Manual (available at www.abet.org).




              Applied and Natural Science Accreditation Commission, Computing Accreditation Commission
               Engineering Accreditation Commission, Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission


ABET requires that each accredited program publicly state the program’s educational objectives and
student outcomes as well as publicly post annual student enrollment and graduation data as stated in
Section II.A.6. of the Accreditation Policy and Procedure Manual (available at www.abet.org).

ABET will examine all newly accredited programs’ websites within the next two weeks to ensure
compliance.

Please note that appeals are allowed only in the case of Not to Accredit actions. Also, such appeals may
be based only on the conditions stated in Section II.L. of the 2017-2018 Accreditation Policy and
Procedure Manual (available at www.abet.org).

Sincerely,




Ann L. Kenimer, Chair
Engineering Accreditation Commission
