To celebrate the accreditation of engineering bachelor’s degrees at Cal State Bakersfield, the university is hosting a celebration from 3 to 5 p.m. Friday at Solario de Fortaleza in the Students Recreation Center.

ABET accreditation assures that programs meet standards to produce graduates ready to enter technical fields.

The celebration will include remarks from CSUB administration and industry supporters, a video presentation, faculty demonstrations, student research project presentations and a decal-making station with the CSUB Fab Lab team.

Reserved parking will be available in Lot K1.
