Abstract As a result of economic and workforce trends, there is a strong interest among policy makers and educational stakeholders in graduating more engineers with entrepreneurship skills and an entrepreneurial mindset. Given the role that ABET accreditation takes in shaping undergraduate engineering curriculum, wide adoption of entrepreneurship education could be driven by demonstrating the manner in which its outcomes align with accreditation mandates. This work in progress describes research taking place that is designed to develop a robust rationale for aligning entrepreneurship education with ABET Criterion 3 a-k, and to provide examples of the manner in which entrepreneurship-related outcomes can meet these criteria.
