History of ABET

ABET was founded in 1932 as the Engineers’ Council for Professional Development (ECPD), an engineering professional body dedicated to the education, accreditation, regulation and professional development of engineering professionals and students in the United States.


At its founding, ECPD was headquartered in New York City, first at the Engineering Societies Building and then the United Engineering Center. At present, ABET relocated to Baltimore, Maryland, in 1996.
