Life at Sejong
A prestigious global university that fosters Sejong-type talent who challenges creative thinking and communicates with the world.
About "Accreditation for Engineering Education"
Sejong University College of Engineering (College of Electronics and Information Engineering / College of Engineering) introduces an engineering education accreditation program based on freshmen in 2007.
Students who complete the engineering accreditation program must access the school’s engineering education accreditation system.
Also they are given ID and have to manage everything for their portfolio themselves.

Accreditation Board for Engineering Education of Korea
The Korea Institute of Engineering Education was established in 1999 to improve the quality of engineering education and foster practical talents along with the promotion of joining the Washington Convention, an international organization for engineering education in Korea.
The accreditation Board for Engineering Education of Korea was founded on August 30, 1999 with the voluntary participation of the Korea Institute of Engineering and Technology, the Ministry of Education and Human Resources, the Ministry of Industrial Resources, the National Council of Engineering, industries, and engineering-related professional societies.
Sejong University's engineering education accreditation agency is each program (major), and the engineering education center supports and manages its work.
Accreditation for Engineering Education in foreign country
CRITERIA FOR ACCREDITING ENGINEERING/COMPUTING PROGRAMS
All engineering/computing education programs are demand-driven and outcome-based education.
The programs shall satisfy the following eight criteria:
The engineering education program are consists of 4 or more years of curriculum.
Students who finished 4 or more years of curriculum awards Bachelor of Engineering.
In particular, the engineering education curriculum is closely related to the students’ regular course.
Each Engineering Programs’ curriculum should be systematically organized and continuously improved to achieve the Program outcomes. In addition, Design-related subjects should be systematically organized to increase the graduates’ field adaptability.
Especially in senior, Capstone Design Project based on knowledge and skills learned in junior curriculum and taking into account practical limitations such as industrial standards, economy, environment, ethics, safety, society, politics etc.
The minimum number of credits required for each subject area suggested by the Engineering Education Accreditation Board as a standard
Things to do
Students who choose the Engineering Education Accreditation (ABEEK) course should be able to prove that they have the ability to major-based, basic engineering literacy, and engineering practice. To this end, students must complete designated courses recognized by universities and continue to consult with professors to meet the purpose of the certification program. In addition, one must continuously record and keep the portfolio of one's learning outcomes up-to-date, and participate in class evaluation to improve classes.
AACSB (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business)
Established in 1916, AACSB is the world’s largest business education alliance, connecting educators, learners, and businesses to create the next generation of great leaders. With a presence in more than 100 countries and territories, AACSB fosters engagement, accelerates innovation, and amplifies impact in business education.
AACSB accreditation is known, worldwide, as the longest-standing, most recognized form of specialized accreditation that an institution and its business programs can earn. Accreditation includes a rigorous external review of a school's mission, faculty qualifications, curricula, and ability to provide the highest-quality programs.
Currently, the world's top business schools such as Harvard, Stanford, Yale, MIT, Pennsylvania, London Business School, and France Insead are accredited, and of the 13,000 business administration programs in universities worldwide, less than 6%, or 910 across 58 countries, are accredited.
AACSB certification is a process in which the ability to execute excellent management education is verified through rigorous evaluation of management education and the authentication is granted accordingly.
Sejong University is the fourth Korean university to acquire AACSB accreditation in 2007 after Seoul National University, KAIST, and Korea University. In February 2012, we re-acquired international accreditation throughout the undergraduate, graduate programs including MBA program after the rigorous screening process of Peer Review Team and the following accreditation committees.
It is particularly meaningful as we are the first university with less than 10,000 undergraduate students to be accredited for its management education capabilities.
Purpose of Accreditation
AACSB International (AACSB) connects educators, students, and business to achieve a common goal: to create the next generation of great business leaders.
AACSB provides quality assurance, business education intelligence, and professional development services to more than 1,600 member organizations and over 800 accredited business schools worldwide. AACSB’s mission is to foster engagement, accelerate innovation, and amplify impact in business education.
At the same time, we aim to produce global management talents through academic exchanges with the world's leading AACSB accredited business schools.
