Many engineering departments often struggle with meeting “the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context” (Outcome h) that is required by ABET. In this workshop, we present the foundations of product archaeology – the process of reconstructing the lifecycle of a product including the customer requirements, design specifications, and manufacturing processes used to produce it, to understand the decisions that led to its development. The workshop will build upon our efforts in cyber-enabled product dissectio ... (continued)

Microinequities: The Power of Small™ program focuses on how we send messages across businesses, borders and cultures. It instructs participants how to drive rapid behavior change, incorporate this skill into the realm of routine workplace interactions and measurably raise business leadership and diversity performance. Repeated sending or receiving of negative micromessages, MicroInequities, results in exponential erosion of workforce effectiveness. It’s these very messages that often cause colleagues who receive them to question their value and ultimately their commitment to a business. Conversely ... (continued)

What’s New in ABET Accreditation?
The ABET General Criteria for Accreditation have undergone several changes in recent years. The fundamental focus of these changes was to bring the General Criteria across the four ABET Commissions (Applied Science, Computing, Engineering and Engineering Technology) into a consistent language and process where appropriate.
In October 2012, the ABET Board of Directors voted to approve, effective for the 2013-14 review cycle, changes to the harmonized General Criteria-Criterion 2: Program Educational Objectives and Criterion 4: Continuous Improvement for Criteria. ... (continued)
