Abstract: Lack of coordination in accreditation activities results in assessment being a burdensome and inefficient process. This work emphasizes the need of a preemptive and coordinated effort to consolidate various accreditation activities to make the assessment process more streamlined and efficient within the context of technical discipline. Specifically, this work demonstrates common grounds of assessment activities between the regional standards and ABETS accreditation criteria to attain assessment efficiency.
