Norwich University earned its six-year accreditation from the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology for three bachelor of science programs in the David Crawford School of Engineering: civil engineering, electrical and computer engineering and mechanical engineering.
The approval follows a yearlong self-study and outside review process, which was completed in 2021. Accreditation relates to licensing and a graduate’s ability to sit for the engineering licensing exam and assesses programs, facilities and student outcomes.
Since the last accreditation, the David Crawford School of Engineering has invested in three new facilities: Wallace Materials Testing Facility, Carrara Family Fluids Lab and ProtoCAM Lab, and the Collaboratory.
