Abstract


Accreditation has recognized itself worldwide as the key appliance for quality assurance in engineering education, Beginning with the pioneering efforts of Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology ABET [14], USA, and countries are approaching under the shade of the Washington Accord [7]. Accreditation includes a two-stage process, self-assessment and peer evaluation; the essential changes are highlighted. In the last two decades, an explosive growth in the number of institutions offering engineering programs has been detected. This unprecedented growth obviously led to several problems with regard to quality of engineering education. In order to ensure the quality of engineering education, the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh (IEB) to formulate the criteria or standards, by which individual programs in any engineering institution can be evaluated [5]. Bangladesh has engaged a big leap forward in the area of engineering education by becoming a provisional member of the Washington Accord through the Board of Accreditation for Engineering and Technical Education (BAETE) [3]. As per the requirement the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh (IEB)  has revised the procedures and criteria of accreditation to bring it to international standards. The new procedures and criteria of accreditation came to effect from 1st January 2020. This paper presents the changed part of accreditation of the BAETE.
