ABET Interim Visit on November 15-16, 2009
ABET visitors were going to be the Team Chair, a PEV, and a State Observer. As of October
, the PEV, Keith Dunbar will not be visiting the UW. Thomas Jewell, our ABET Team
Chair, will be conducting the whole visit. Thomas is an ASCE PEV with over 20 years of
experience and lots of tier 1 schools. Keith Dunbar has finished a preliminary evaluation and
