The Faculty of Engineering is one of the leading engineering institutions in Mauritius and has been offering engineering programmes since 1976 with the first batch of students graduating in 1980. On average the Faculty produces some 200 engineering graduates per year. The four year programmes are recognized by the Council of Registered Professional Engineers (CRPE) for entry into engineering practice.

The Faculty is currently in the process of seeking accreditation of its engineering programmes with the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA). The accreditation exercise will also involve the Institution of Engineers Mauritius (IEM) which has recently set up the Engineering Accreditation Board (EAB) for the purpose of accrediting engineering programmes offered by Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) in Mauritius. Accreditation will add value to the engineering programmes by ensuring that the Faculty meets international standards and graduates have the competencies expected of them for embarking into the practice of engineering. In addition, accreditation will facilitate global mobility and increase employment opportunities for graduates.

Several training workshops on accreditation have been conducted, with a view to familiarize staff and students on the guidelines and requirements of ECSA for accreditation.
