The Office of the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education works closely with the following College-wide committees.



The Scholastic Standing Committee monitors and upholds the academic standards of the College of Engineering as defined in the Bulletin


The Curriculum Committee examines all educational programs of the College, graduate and undergraduate, and all proposed changes, and encourages full discussion of the proposals by the members before they take action.


The Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education oversees the ABET Coordinators which consist of representatives from each department who coordinate the required ABET assessment data. Steve Yalisove leads this team keeping updated on ABET requirements, working to find solutions to increase process efficiency, and working in conjunction with IT to develop a College-wide assessment repository.

ABET is a nonprofit, non-governmental agency that accredits programs in applied and natural science, computing, engineering and engineering technology. ABET accreditation provides assurance that a college or university program meets the quality standards of the profession for which that program prepares graduates. The College of Engineering currently has 13 programs accredited between the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) and the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of ABET. More information on ABET accreditation commissions can be found here. A list of UM’s ABET accredited programs can be found here.
