ABET continues accreditation for CIS Program

Bachelor's degree program in Computer Information Systems has been accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of ABET, the recognized accreditor of college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering, and technology. ABET accreditation demonstrates a program's commitment to provide its students with a quality education that meets or exceeds specific criteria established by the relevant professions.

"I extend a wholehearted thank you to all the Computer Information Systems and Information and Logistics Technology faculty and staff who worked so hard in making possible this milestone achievement," said Dean William Fitzgibbon. "During the last several years, the team has successfully integrated the ABET learning criteria into the courses to enhance the knowledge, skills, and learning experiences of our students."

"Our understanding of the student learning assessment process and then defining key aspects within the CIS program courses, aided in documenting course activities that contributed to assessing student learning, measuring student outcomes, and building rubrics to use in assessing student performance," said Dr. Miguel Ramos, Assistant Dean for Assessment and Accreditation.

Support for the CIS program, faculty, and students has provided the administrative and physical instrumentation that help the CIS program better serve our stakeholders, the ILT department, the College of Technology, and the University of Houston," said Dr. Michael Gibson, Professor, Department of Information & Logistics Technology.
