What is Accreditation?

The primary goal of ACCE is to promote and improve construction education in colleges and universities. By working together through ACCE, people representative of the total construction community and the public at large, construction educators and constructors, establish and maintain standards and criteria for accreditation, provide guidance to those programs seeking to achieve accredited status, and carry out the accreditation process.What is Accreditation

Value of Accreditation

ACCE accreditation serves the interests of:

students -- by helping them identify institutions and programs that offer quality education in construction education,

the construction industry -- by enabling employers to identify persons who have the potential for making lasting contributions to the construction industry and their profession, and

owners/users of constructed facilities and the public at large -- by raising the professional caliber of constructors and thus the quality of the construction for which they assume responsibility.

Specifically, accreditation of a construction education program by ACCE assures

a) students and prospective employers that the program has met stringent industry standards of content and quality;

b) that program graduates have been provided a quality education enabling them to perform a broad range of professional responsibilities; and

c) the construction industry and students that the program performs periodic self-evaluations to keep current with emerging technologies and requirements of the construction industry.

Accreditation by ACCE assists an institution and its construction education program in maintaining contact with other programs and practicing construction professionals, and enables the program to

a) keep current with emerging technologies in the field;

b) increase awareness of current courses, facilities, and services provided by other accredited programs;

c) improve instructional techniques; and

d) access construction industry contacts nationwide.
