Computer Science, Information Systems and Web Development reaccredited

Radford University’s Computer Science, Information Systems and Web Development concentrations in the Computer Science and Technology and Information Science and Systems degree programs have received reaccreditation by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, the global accreditor of college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering and engineering technology. 

ABET accreditation assures that programs meet standards to produce graduates ready to enter critical technical fields that are leading the way in innovation and emerging technologies and anticipating the welfare and safety needs of the public.

“Reaccreditation by ABET until September 30, 2022, is external validation of the superior quality of the Computer Science concentration and the Information Science and Systems degree here at Radford University,” said Dean of the College of Science and Technology Orion Rogers. “This impressive achievement was earned through the faculty members’ commitment to excellence in teaching, scholarship and service and to the extraordinary leadership of the department chair, Jeff Pittges, and the coordinators of the Computer Science and Information Science programs.”

Unique for the 2016 reaffirmation of accreditation was that both Radford University programs were accepted without need of any adjustment or modification following the final assessment by ABET.

ABET accreditation reviews look at program curricula, faculty, facilities and institutional support and are conducted by teams of highly-skilled professionals from industry, academia and government, with expertise in the ABET disciplines.
