The accreditation panel shall visit the institution to evaluate the curriculum, facilities, and quality management system. The panel would also have a dialogue with the management, academic and support staff, students, and industry stakeholders.

The period of full accreditation is for five years after which it has to be re-validated. Where there are minor shortcomings in meeting the accreditation requirement, the program may be given accreditation for a period of fewer than five years during which the faculty must take necessary corrective measures.

Prior to the conduct of a new engineering program institution of higher learning shall obtain approval from the relevant authorities. The authority normally will require supporting documents from the EAC.
