ABET-Accredited IH Programs

Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization that accredits college and university programs in the disciplines of applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology. ABET accredits over 3,100 programs at more than 660 colleges and universities in 23 countries. ABET provides specialized, programmatic accreditation that evaluates an individual program of study, rather than evaluating an institution as a whole.

ABET accreditation, which is voluntary and achieved through a peer review process, provides assurance that a college or university program meets the quality standards established by the profession for which the program prepares its students.

ABET is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).

Program Description

The LOGAIR program is the formal graduate study portion of the Advanced Study in Air Mobility (ASAM) program sponsored by the US Air Expeditionary Center (AFEC) at Fort Dix, New Jersey. The goal of the ASAM program is to cultivate a core of mobility officers with an in-depth education in logistics and air mobility operations to lead the Air Mobility Command (AMC) in the future. The ASAM program consists of the degree portion, plus additional AFEC professional courses combined with trips to the joint and major commands around the globe. As such, this enhances the AFIT degree portion of the program, providing the military with a professional, degree-granting program, similar to executive management degree programs in civilian institutions. The curriculum consists of 13 required courses in the areas of transportation, logistics, quantitative decision making, research methods and organizational management. Courses are taught individually in a compressed schedule, typically two weeks in length. The program also requires a graduate research paper that examines a topic pertaining to mobility operations. Satisfactory completion of the curriculum and the graduate research paper leads to the award of a Master of Science in Logistics.

University of Iowa

Industrial Hygiene Program

The University of Iowa’s Industrial Hygiene program trains students to recognize, evaluate, and control occupational and environmental hazards to prevent diseases and injuries. A great strength of our program is the depth of instruction on assessing exposures to and control of health hazards in the workplace with extensive coursework and hands-on activities. Students are also introduced more broadly to the field of occupational and environmental health with coursework in safety, ergonomics, environmental health, toxicology, epidemiology and statistics.

M.S. and Ph.D. tracks provide applied research training, which allows students to focus on specialized areas of interest. Many of our graduates become leaders in the field of occupational and environmental health, making major contributions toward reducing disease and injury. M.S. tracks are accredited by ABET.
