The Architectural Engineering Bachelor of Science program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org. KU's BS ARCE program has been accredited continuously since accreditation of architectural engineering programs began in October 1936 by the ECPD; ECPD renamed itself ABET in 1980.
