  • There's been few research to study the effects of CAC(Computing Accreditation Committee) evaluation, since start of CAC accreditation 10 years ago. The purpose of this paper is to find what computer engineering graduates perceive the effects of CAC accreditation and to suggest how CAC accreditation process can be improved. The research findings through survey are followings; First, computer engineering graduates' undergraduate education satisfaction is not high enough(3.28). Second, the computer engineering graduates don't recognize CAC accreditation necessary. Third, graduates who work in company chose design courses as the most helpful, while graduates who study in graduate school pursuing further career in master or doctor program chose major subjects. Lastly, graduates from accredited program do not think their completion of accreditation program influence their employment. Strategic approaches to make higher effectiveness of CAC accreditation system are suggested. First, improvement of curriculum and instruction method in CAC accredited program is required to satisfy the needs of students and industry. Second, efforts to inform students of understandings and necessity of accreditation are highly recommended. Third, industrial sector needs to understand CAC accreditation and give graduates from accredited program more incentives. Lastly, government support like Seoul Accord Activation Project should last for a while.

  • The employment rate of a college has long been one of the most important elements in college survival strategies. Employment rates may not be key to colleges' survival in other countries, but they are fundamental to colleges in Korea as seen in the Korean government-led National Competency Standard (NCS), which has been underway since its introduction to colleges in Korea. Against this backdrop, if the engineering accreditation system can contribute to improving employment rate in this context, it can take root more quickly. The process conducive to improving employment rates can be classified as both direct and indirect methods. With dwindling school-age population having impacts on colleges and universities, the environment and the education directions of colleges have rapidly been shifting since the introduction of the NCS. Therefore, various survival strategies for colleges need to be developed. An indicator of employment rate of college graduates is among the most important things during this transition process. The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Koje College has consistently shown good records during the past 5 years by matching the accreditation schemes and employment strategies. The department will help put in place the engineering technology education accreditation system at the college through its various innovative and effective programs. To formulate a better employment strategy, it is needed to reflect and consolidate the engineering accreditation scheme into the existing employment policy of college. In short, this paper examines both the engineering accreditation scheme and the employment policy in ways that helps produce a coupling matrix structure. This study looks into the measures for improving employment rates by better adjusting the engineering education methods under the accreditation scheme.

  • Kunsan National University obtained accreditation for its Architecture & Building Engineering Program from the Accreditation Board for Engineering Education in Korea (ABEEK) in 2004 and has offered an ABEEK-accredited degree pathway ever since. Then, in 2018, the university introduced the course-embedded outcomes assessment system as per ABEEK's KEC2015 accreditation criteria. One year into its implementation, the new system allows the measurement and assessment of 10 program outcomes covering 19 curricular modules and 1 non-curricular licensing examination. The system incorporates the four areas of specialization within architectural engineering as well as the three course categories of the math, science, and computer; liberal arts; and engineering core modules under the accreditation scheme. It also takes the students' academic years into account, especially for the mandatory modules offered to all students. Its rubric clarifies the performance criteria, performance level, assessment tools, objectives, and modules. The 2018 course-embedded outcomes assessment system is an ever-evolving structure with regular CQI: Continuous Quality Improvements along the circular process of system establishment → implementation → evaluation as per the virtuous cycle model required for an accredited engineering program.
