According to ABET, the College of Engineering enjoys a particularly high level of institutional support which is evident in the resources provided in human services and facilities. The KKU has implemented a quality control information system which is centrally driven and managed, and used operationally at the college level. The university has a strategy focusing on achieving new strengths by the year 2030 that include a commitment to new research initiatives, introduction of further graduate programs, and attraction of high quality faculty. The curriculum of these three Engineering programs was designed to cover all their fundamentals of Engineering and provide sufficient practical knowledge to bridge the gap between university and industries. The Program strength consists in the number and variety of laboratories, and the summer training providing students with practical experience.

Finally, ABET accreditation increases educational opportunities for students and provides graduates with distinctive job opportunities in local and global companies worldwide.
