The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology is the premier organization in the U.S. that provides accreditation to engineering and computer science programs. Individual programs (i.e., mechanical engineering) are accredited at the bachelor’s level.

The Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET has accredited the biomedical, chemical and life science, electrical and computer, and mechanical engineering programs at the VCU School of Engineering.

The Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET has provided accreditation to the computer science program for many years.
