What ABET Accreditation Means

Accreditation is key. It means our program upholds stringent quality standards. ABET (www.abet.org) is the recognized accreditor for programs such as ours. Its stamp of approval means you'll get a great education from us.

OUR BIOENGINEERING DEGREE

Interested in our Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Bioengineering? It's not ABET Accredited, and it's not for you if you want to be a professional engineer. But it's a great springboard into postgraduate study if you're planning on a career in bioengineering, medicine, dentistry, public health, or physiology.

CLASSES YOU'LL TAKE

SOMETIMES YOU NEED TO TAKE A BREAK FROM BOOK LEARNIN' AND DO A LITTLE MATERIALS-TESTING-MACHINE LEARNIN'

Walla Walla University has created an interesting and rigorous curriculum that turns you from an engineering student into an engineer. In addition to the basics—Calculus, Chemistry, and Physics, you'll study more specific subjects as part of your concentration.

As a Mechanical Engineering student, you'll really get a kick out of Manufacturing Systems class. This is where you get to put your problem—solving cranium to work building a machine that performs a specific task and setup a programmable logic controller to coordinate motors and linear actuators.

If you're a Civil Engineering student, you'll be out in the field taking Surveying. Or Structural Design, where you design bridges and buildings, and then test their integrity with computer simulations. Or Materials Testing, where you explore the strengths and weaknesses of substances such as concrete, steel, and asphalt. Or Transportation Engineering, where you explore signal design, road layout, and mass transit planning.

Electrical Engineers enjoy the challenge of Embedded Systems Design, a hands-on class where students design a circuit board, have it manufactured, and then assemble it and write software to make it work. For example, you could create—from scratch—a device that measures heart rate in beats per minute, or a meter that measures the value of a capacitor.

Computer Engineers are never as happy as when they're studying Computer Architecture—how computers move those 1s and 0s around to execute instructions—or Digital Design, where students design a circuit at the binary level.
