Students’ Questions


The College of Engineering (CENG) at Qatar University (QU) was established in 1980 with four programs and less than 50 students. Over the years, the college has grown to become a flagship for QU with 8 undergraduate programs, 7 master programs, and one PhD program with more than 3600 students.

In accordance with this rapid growth, the college has started a systematic process for quality assurance applied to all the programs. The college has also moved through the required stages that lead to accreditation for its programs, according to the standards of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).  ABET is a highly recognized and internationally respected accreditor of college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering, and technology. ABET has set the higher-educational standards in its fields for nearly 75 years.

The following bachelor engineering degree programs in the CENG are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commissions; EAC ofABET.

  • Chemical Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Computer Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Industrial & Systems Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering

In the CENG, the Computer Science program is also accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission ofABET

Accreditation is a process that requires programs to undergo comprehensive, periodic evaluations, and assures that the graduates are well-prepared and ready for advanced study and real-world employment. It helps students and their parents to choose quality accredited university programs. It also motivates institutions to apply systematic and effective continuous improvement methods through program’s assessment and evaluation.

A starting point towards the achievement of accreditation was in October 2005, when four programs of CENG were granted the “Substantially Equivalency” accreditation by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. Those programs are; Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. These engineering programs at Qatar University were among the first in the region to be evaluated using ABET accreditation criteria and procedures.

At the college level, accreditation  is a form of endorsement that the college uses to let potential students know that their programs offer a valid education that is officially recognized internationally. At the college level, the accreditation is considered as an important milestone for the programs offered by CENG. The hard work of our faculty members and collaborations with local industrial partners and stakeholders were the key drivers to this achievement.

At the university level, the accreditation of our programs comes in-line with the institutional strategic plan for accrediting all the university programs by recognized international accreditation agencies. This achievement demonstrates the commitment of the university to quality assurance for all academic programs with the aim of providing students with an internationally acclaimed quality education. It also provides a reliable basis for inter- and intra-university cooperative practices, including student admissions and transfer of credit.
