Abstract

The rationale behind the study and design of this paper is to first create awareness of switching ABET Criteria 3 (a – k) Student Outcomes into the changed (1 – 7) Student Outcomes. Secondly, the paper discusses how to cope with ABET’s updated accreditation model for those programs undergoing a review during the 2019-20 cycle, which may choose to comply with the revised ABET guidelines. Further, we review ABET’s process timeline, which has warranted the need of mapping (a – k) Student Outcomes to (1 – 7) Student Outcomes. Our study reveals that there are different mappings models suggested through the reported research works. Hence, through this paper we want to present our proposed mappings model. The proposed model is based on the design of Performance Indicators (PIs) for (a – k) and (1 – 7) Student Outcomes, analysis of the Washington Accord’s attributes (WA1 – WA12) and knowledge (WK1 – WK8), along with analyzing the definition of complex engineering problems at different levels and stages of curriculum progression.
