- Engineering accreditation is an important foundation for building international mutual recognition of engineering education and engineer qualification. This paper introduces the engineering accreditation and the Washington Accord at first. Then, according to the professional evaluation practice for some engineering programs in China, the paper proposes two strategies to carry out engineering accreditation on the basis of professional evaluation. Finally, some suggestions and measures for the college engineering education in China are proposed to adapt to engineering accreditation: (1) More measure should be taken to students' communication, teamwork and engineering ethics while teaching students engineering knowledge, (2) The relationship between college engineering education and industrial sector should be more closely integrated and the ability of engineering application should be strengthened; (3) The teaching staff should be optimized according to the engineering accreditation standards; (4) The students' global vision and international competitiveness should be developed.
