Five programs in Morehead State’s School of Engineering and Computer Science have been accredited or reaccredited by the Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering (ATMAE). 

The Bachelor of Science (BS) in Construction and Civil Engineering Technology, BS in Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology, BS in Mechanical and Manufacturing Technology, BS in Technology Management, and the Master of Science in Engineering and Technology Management have been accredited/reaccredited through November 2026.  

“ATMAE accreditation provides us with a framework for self-evaluation and continuous program improvement to ensure that our graduates will have attained a recognized skill level and set of competencies required by industry,” said Dr. Ahmad Zargari, associate dean of School of Engineering and Computer Science. 

The ATMAE accreditation visiting team made a virtual visit to MSU in mid-April 2020 and met virtually with the advisory board members, alumni, employers, faculty, staff, the dean, provost, and MSU President Dr. Jay Morgan. The team was also provided with a virtual tour of ATMAE accredited programs, laboratories, and classrooms. The ATMAE Board of Accreditation approved the visiting team’s recommendation to accredit/reaccredit MSU programs during the board hearing on Nov. 4, 2020, conducted at the 2020 Annual ATMAE Conference held virtually from Nov. 4 to Nov. 6, 2020. 

The primary purpose of the ATMAE accreditation is to provide recognition of the attainment of certain professional goals and standards for technology, management, and applied engineering programs.
