Abstract

The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) has been accrediting engineering and computer science for many years and they are the standard accreditation in these areas. . In recent years ABET has been accrediting Information Systems and Information Technology programs. ABET first accredited IS in 2000 and IT in 2003. ABET appears to have become the standard accreditation for IT and in the spring of 2014 there are 25 IT programs accredited by ABET. There are 38 IS programs accredited by ABET since 2000 but it does not appear that ABET accreditation has become the standard for IS programs. This paper looks at the IS and IT ABET accredited programs and examines the common features and differences of these related accredited programs.
