All engineering programs in the USA are accredited by the same agency, the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). Further ABET information is available here
. The mechanical engineering curriculum at the University of Wyoming has been continuously accredited by ABET since 1941. The Energy Systems Engineering degree program, launched in 2009, was first accredited by ABET in 2012 with retroactive application to all earlier graduates. Maintaining accreditation is one of the highest priorities of our Mechanical Engineering faculty. Program strength can also be inferred by examining student performance on the NCEES Fundamentals of Engineering exam, which is the first step to professional licensure. Over the past decade (through May 2016), the pass rate for UW’s ME students taking the NCEES FE exam has been 92 percent, which is 10 percentage points above the national average for mechanical engineers. Over the past UW’s ESE students have a pass rate of 93 percent.
