DS is an engineering major in his plebe year at KP (just recognized Friday!). He would like the option of going to grad school for an advanced engineering degree. I understand that the Marine Engineering major at KP is not ABET accredited. That only the majors Marine Engineering Systems and Marine Engineering an Shipyard Management are ABET accredited. I also understand that you need a minimum GPA during plebe year to be eligible to major in MES and/or MESM (which DS does not think he has after 2 trimesters). 1. Does anyone know why the Marine Engineering major is not ABET accredited? 2. Can anyone comment on whether grad schools require applicants to have majored in an ABET accredited program? 3. Does anyone know what the minimum GPA is to be eligible for the MES or MESM majors at KP? Are there ever exceptions or waivers? 4. What other drawbacks are there to the fact that the Marine Engineering major is not ABET accredited? I note that SUNY and Maine (I haven't checked Mass) Maritime Colleges seem to have more ABET accredited majors and that maybe, if DS's GPA at KP is not enough to major in MES or MESM, I wonder if a transfer is worthwhile so as to get an ABET accredited degree? If anyone can shed some light on these concerns, I would be most appreciative.
