Hello, I'm a foreign student wishing to pursue a Bachelor's Degree in Chemical Engineering in the US.
I was told (by the internet) that I should look at / apply to only ABET accredited colleges, so I was doing some research, and saw that because of my "international" status, I'd be facing potential annual expenses of about 50k+ USD at these "accredited" colleges, which is very, very, far out of my budget.
So, my question is, how important is ABET accreditation for Chemical Engineering, really?
To my understanding, it's only actually useful for a few engineering disciplines, CivEngg being the best example, and that too only if you wish to obtain a PE license. Is this correct?
