Accreditation for WPI & Programs
WPI is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc., a nongovernmental, nationally recognized organization whose affiliated institutions include elementary schools through collegiate institutions offering post-graduate instruction.
Accreditation of an institution by the New England Association indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality periodically applied through a peer group review process.
An accredited school or college is one which has available the necessary resources to achieve its stated purposes through appropriate educational programs, is substantially doing so, and gives reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Institutional integrity is also addressed through accreditation.
- Programs leading to majors in aerospace engineering, biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer science, electrical and computer engineering, environmental engineering, industrial engineering, mechanical engineering and robotics engineering are accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
- The Chemistry and Biochemistry Department and its program are approved by the American Chemical Society for a major in chemistry.
- Accreditation for the Computer Science program comes from the Computing Sciences Accreditation Board (CSAB).
- The bachelor's and master's degree programs offered by the School of Business are accredited by AACSB International–The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
