(BPRW) B-CU Computer Engineering Program Accreditation Extended To 2027

(Black PR Wire) It was a banner day for the team that comprises the B-CU College of Science, Engineering and Mathematics as they received an extension of accreditation from ABET, or the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology. Originally accredited in 2013, the Computer Engineering Program has been lauded as producing well-qualified, and highly sought-after students. Graduate programs and industries all across the country come knocking for our fine students.

B-CU Provost Dr. William Berry shared his excitement. "I am delighted for the College of Science, Engineering and Mathematics team and, of course, for our fine computer engineering students. The extended accreditation by ABET reaffirms B-CU's quest for academic excellence for our students. A special thank you to Dr. Herbert Thompson, Dr. Morrison Obeng, Dr. Amed Badi, and the ABET accreditation team for all of their tremendous work during the accreditation process."

We are so proud of our remarkable students who rose to the accreditation challenge. Dr. Herbert Thompson, Interim Dean of the College of Science, Engineering and Mathematics expressed “It is the students themselves who are most responsible for this achievement as they represent what is good about the program and the university. Their willingness to enthusiastically learn and grow within this most challenging area of study was readily apparent during the ABET site visit. We are eternally grateful for the opportunity to work with such fine representatives of what Bethune-Cookman University can produce.”

Dr. Thompson, beaming with pride, also thanked B-CU Provost Dr. William Berry, Co-Provost, Dr. Roberta Troy, Dr. Morrison Obeng, Professor Emeritus and program founder, and Dr. Amed Badi, Chair of the Department of Computer Engineering for all of their support and assistance during the process.
