ATMAE ensures that students in educational programs receive an education consistent with standards for entry to practice, or advanced practice, in each of their respective fields.

(Indianapolis, Ind.) – Ivy Tech Community College has received accreditation from the Association of Technology, Management and Applied Engineering (ATMAE). The Ivy Tech Community College system is accredited at the state level, with review of all regional programs included. ATMAE ensures that students in educational programs receive an education consistent with standards for entry to practice, or advanced practice, in each of their respective fields.

Ten of the Ivy Tech Advanced Manufacturing, Engineering and Applied Science (AMEAS) programs were reaccredited. Two AMEAS programs, Diesel Technology and the online Building Construction program, were accredited for the first time.

“Congratulations to Ivy Tech for their successful accreditation review,” said Glenn Rettig, ATMAE Accreditation Board Chair. “Ivy Tech is the only state-wide ATMAE accredited institution in the United States. Continuous review of program goals and needs are required to achieve program success. Ivy Tech has demonstrated this success at each accredited location throughout the state. Once again, congratulations to Ivy Tech for receiving statewide accreditation in multiple programs.”  

Ivy Tech, along with the University of Arkansas, were the first institutions for ATMAE to consider a 100% online program during the pilot review. Initial accreditation is granted for a four-year period. Programs must submit to a comprehensive re-evaluation for reaccreditation which, at the sole discretion of the ATMAE Board of Accreditation, is granted for a six-year period.

“We are honored to be the only approved statewide accreditation in ATMAE’s history,” said Glen Roberson, assistant vice president, Ivy Tech Community College. “The six year accreditation validates our dedication and commitment to student success and Indiana’s workforce. By listening to our industry partners and graduates, we have continuously improved in every area to meet the nationally recognized accreditation standards set forth by ATMAE.”

The ATMAE evaluation of Ivy Tech includes a thorough review of programs. This year, the results included zero non-compliance ratings. For the 19 standards, Ivy Tech has improved in five of the standards since first getting approved for statewide ATMAE accreditation in 2013.

The ATMAE receiving programs provide students with the opportunity to earn a credential for a high-wage, high-demand job and classes start March 16. The programs offer options for an associate degree, but also certificates and technical certificates that can be earned in less than two-years. Some of the certificate and technical certificate options are covered as part of the Next Level Jobs program where the credential can be earned for free.
