Optical engineering education with curriculum mapping for ABET accreditation

Paper Abstract

The Physics and Optical Engineering department at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology offers three degrees at the undergraduate level; physics, optical engineering, and engineering physics. The department recently transitioned a science-based applied optics degree into a B.S (Optical Engineering) degree. With this transition we began the process of seeking accreditation for the optical engineering program through the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET). This paper describes several assessment components of the accreditation process which includes a detailed curriculum mapping exercise to meet engineering standards. We discuss the overall outcome based optical engineering education.
