UCSD Computer Engineering program not ABET accredited

<p>I was really surprised to find out recently that UCSD's computer engineering program is not ABET accredited. CE is one of the few impacted majors at UCSD. </p>

<p>Current ABET accredited engineering programs at UCSD:</p>

<p>Does anyone know of any potential drawbacks to getting an engineering degree that is not ABET accredited?</p>

<p>Don't worry about ABET. There is no draw back at all for a school like UCSD. Tons of students graduated with a CE degree from UCSD and went to selective graduate schools in the last 25 years.</p>

<p>For a field like CE, there's no reason to be accredited. It's important in fields like civil engineering, where you need a license to work.</p>
