The American University of Ras Al Khaimah (AURAK) has proudly announced that two programs within its School of Engineering were awarded with full ABET accreditation this week.

The prestigious Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, or ABET, is the leading accrediting body for post-secondary academic programs in ‘applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology’.

The two programs to be granted the accreditation at AURAK, the Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering and the Bachelor of Science in Electronics and Communication Engineering, are now internationally recognized as programs of the highest quality in terms of producing graduates prepared to enter a global workforce.

Professor Hassan Hamdan Al Alkim, AURAK president who has resolutely driven the University towards gaining international accreditation, was delighted upon hearing the news.

“Congratulations to all.  This shows that a clear vision and a hard work and commitment always lead to success,” stated Prof. Al Alkim.  “I also reiterate my sincere thanks to the School of Engineering, especially the dean, Professor Mousa Mohsen, the two department chairs, and the faculty.  My thanks and gratitude are also extended to all of those who contributed in one way or another to this wonderful achievement.”

AURAK firmly believe that this is the first success of many.  As students continue to graduate, an increasing amount of academic programs are becoming eligible for the accreditation process.  The University is striving for ABET accreditation for further programs in the School of Engineering, AACSB accreditation for the School of Business, as well as institutional accreditation from SACSCOC.
