2018 #ABETConfident Student Video Award Winner: USEK
Every year hundreds of thousands of graduates all over the world count on ABET accreditation to ensure that when they hit the job market their education has prepared them to succeed in their careers.
We want to know what that confidence means to our students. This video competition aims to capture the confidence that students have in their ABET-accredited education.
When a student enrolls in an ABET-accredited program, they know their education will prepare them to build bridges, design pacemakers or create the infrastructure that allows society to live in a seamless, digital world. They want to play a role in creating the technologies that make the world a better place. ABET accreditation gives students, their future employers and society the confidence that they have what it takes to build a safer, more sustainable world.
About the #ABETconfident Video Contest
ABET accredits university programs in the STEM fields. Becoming ABET-accredited doesn’t happen overnight. Faculty put in a great deal of effort above and beyond their work in the classroom to become accredited. And for many programs, the students who benefit the most from accreditation have no idea what kind of process or preparation goes into meeting that global standard.
Through the #ABETconfident Video Contest, we’re encouraging faculty to communicate the value of ABET accreditation to their students, while giving the students a platform to convey their confidence in the caliber of the education they are receiving, and where they are investing their hard work, time and money.
