AccreditationDate: 8 October 2015

The University of New England has been notified that its Bachelor of Engineering Technology degree is now fully accredited.

A panel of three professional engineers from Engineers Australia visited UNE for three days in late April to appraise the engineering degree.

In the rigorous process, they interviewed academics, staff, students and former graduates, met with UNE’s vice-chancellor, Professor Annabelle Duncan, and inspected a number of facilities in the School of Environment and Rural Sciences.

The evaluators expressed appreciation for the high level of readiness of UNE graduates – who had “exceptional quality in terms of their communications skills and their ability to articulate issues” – for working in industry.

The convenor of engineering, Mr Rex Glencross-Grant, said that he was very pleased the degree was able to move from provisional to full accreditation status.

“The visit was very comprehensive and examined all aspects of the course very thoroughly and professionally,” Mr Glencross-Grant said.

“But now our students can enjoy full recognition and access into the profession for their hard work at UNE.”
