Faculty of Engineering
ACCREDITATION

The Faculty of Engineering at Notre Dame University-Louaize is working on the accreditation of all its programs with ABET Inc and the process is at an advanced stage. This page is intended to be like a central place listing the latest activities undertaken by the Faculty in that regards.

Timeline

Outcome Assessment Committees (OACs 2015-2016)

The accreditation process is tackled by the various Outcome Assessment Committees specific to each program as well the Faculty Outcome Assessment Committee with the direct support of all faculty members. Meetings are being held on regular basis and all documents related to the work of the committees (minutes, rubrics, surveys, forms, …) are stored in one central server with access granted to all faculty members and key staff members. The committees may be contacted directly through their chairs.

Advisory Committees

One of the major characteristics associated with quality engineering education is its close connection with the community it intends to serve. To foster such connections, feedback from the community are to be collected with the main objective of contributing to the improvement of the education process itself and creating the right match university/industry. One way to gather feedback is through program advisory committees composed of prominent experts in their respective fields and willing to advise the academia on the design, development, implementation, evaluation, maintenance, and revision of engineering programs.
The different program advisory committees of the Faculty of Engineering at Notre dame University-Louaize are actively engaged in assisting, supporting, and advocating the corresponding programs. The specific areas where their contribution is greatly appreciated include, but are not limited to:

  1. The evaluation of the Program Educational Objectives
  2. The assessment of the education quality
  3. The evaluation of the performance and level of competency of graduates
  4. The recommendation on new courses, curriculum changes and research orientation from an industry perspective
  5. The support needed to foster and expand the current relationship with business, industry and different organizations
  6. The promotion of the programs in the community

Awareness Campaign

Awareness campaigns are being conducted every semester since spring 2014 to promote the accreditation culture and to explain the ins and outs of the entire process. A large number of engineering students is regularly attending the presentations and different issues are raised and explained by the Assessment Coordinator and faculty members present. A typical poster and two shots are shown below to show the success of the process.
