I have been asked to help recruit new IT/IS/CS Program Evaluator (PEV) for ABET (http:www.abet.org
); the basic duty of a PEV is to visit Universities in order to evaluate and subsequently recommend whether to accredit or not accredit IT/IS/CS Bachelor degree level programs. The process requires normally about 20-30 hours of pre work before a visit and then a 2-3 day on campus evaluation. ABET provides all the training and of course covers all travel and visit related expenses, but the time itself is volunteered (some companies and many universities may consider the time professional development and do not require the use of vacation or leave time; others do not). I have been a part of ABET for several years now, and the experience has been very worthwhile and educational.
Becoming a PEV does require a Masters degree in a Computing discipline (IT/IS/CS or CSE), along with relevant and current computing experience. Additional detail about the process can be found at http://csab.org/volunteer.html
. Of course, I would be more than happy to answer any questions (post to this thread and we can direct message from there), and please feel free to forward this message on to others who may be interested / qualified.
Thanks Scott Murray
