Evaluations of engineering education programs leading to degrees at all levels are conducted by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) upon request by institutions outside the United States. While these evaluation follow similar policies and procedures used for accreditation, no accreditation action is taken, nor is there any inference that a program is undergoing accreditation or will be accredited as a result of such review. The activity is an evaluation (program review) in which ABET, through selected representatives, acts on a consultancy basis, and leads to an assessment of "substantial equivalency" of the program under review with accredited programs in the United States. 

"Substantial equivalency" means comparable in program content and educational experience, but such programs may not be absolutely identical in format or method of delivery. It implies reasonable confidence that the program has prepared its graduates to begin professional practice at the entry level.
