Accreditation

ATMAE - The Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering

In the fall semester of 2014, ATMAE accreditation for seven Division of Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics programs was formally requested. The necessary documentation was submitted to ATMAE in February 2015. The AAS in Cyber Technology (Network Security and Programmer Analyst concentrations), AAS in Computer Information Systems, AAS in Construction Technology and Management, AAS in Industrial Technology (Engineering Graphics and Automation and Controls concentrations), and AAS in Oil and Gas Production Technology programs were submitted for accreditation review. The ATMAE site visit team reviewed the programs in detail during their visit the week of March 9, 2015. The site visit team recommended “Accreditation with a 2-Year Follow-Up Report” for all seven programs reviewed including Cyber Technology. The ATMAE Board of Accreditation met in November 2015 and awarded accreditation to all seven programs in the TEM Division. The 2-Year Follow-Up Report will be presented for approval on November 1st, 2017 at the annual ATMAE hearings.
