There are a lot of misconceptions about ABET, and this "Soapbox" episode sets out to correct some of them. In particular, we talk about opportunities to innovate in engineering curricula in a way that meets ABET Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) criteria requirements and advances justice, equity, diversity and inclusion by teaching students to be more equitable and inclusive engineers. After an overview, we focus this episode on student outcomes related to communication and teams.
