ABET officially confirmed accreditation of KBTU
Kazakh-British Technical University (KBTU) became the first Kazakhstan university to receive international accreditation in the United States for computer majors. The most reputable American accreditation agency ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) has officially confirmed successful accreditation of KBTU in all computer majors. Recognition by the ABET means compliance with the quality standard set in the United States for professional education.
The university’s rector Iskander Baisembetov noted at the press-conference that “in 2009 KBTU received international accreditation for engineering majors in Great Britain and the majority of its graduates started their careers in international oil companies. Now since August 1, 2011 all graduates with IT diplomas of KBTU will have equal rights with graduates of Western universities in recruitment or continuing education in any country of the world.”
International accreditation of KBTU in the U.S. was preceded by successful participation of the university in the world programming championship in Orlando. KBTU shared 27th place with Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Tokyo University, being ahead of Princeton and Seoul Universities, Indian Technological University and Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology.
