Are you passionate about the quality of industrial engineering education? Do you want to have an impact on the next generation of industrial engineers? Then apply to become an IIE ABET volunteer.
What is ABET? ABET, a federation of 30 professional and technical societies in applied science, computing, engineering and engineering technology, accredits some 2,900 educational programs at more than 600 colleges and universities around the world. IIE is one of the 30 professional societies. For more information, please go to the ABET website at: www.abet.org.
Volunteers from each of the ABET member societies are the heart of ABET’s operations and the face of quality in today’s technical higher education. Volunteers begin their service as a program evaluator (PEV). IIE PEVs evaluate postsecondary degree-granting programs in industrial engineering against a set of general and program-specific criteria. These criteria outline the requirements for students, faculty, facilities, curriculum and other key program areas. It is the program evaluator’s job to determine if a program meets these criteria. The evaluation encompasses review of the program’s self-study prior to the program visit, participation in a three-day on-site visit, and completion of a cogent assessment of the program using ABET forms and templates. The annual time commitment is approximately seven days. ABET covers all reasonable evaluation-related travel expenses.
To find out more about being a PEV, visit: www.abet.org/volunteer.shtml or contact Bonnie Cameron at firstname.lastname@example.org (770) 449-0461, x105.
Or individuals who are interested in providing this service for IIE and the industrial engineering profession should notify Pat Koelling and provide him with a comprehensive resume that addresses the selection criteria previously described:
