For anyone unfamiliar, here is the program I'm talking about. Its a fully online BSEE at Stony Brook, aimed at students who've already done most of their lower level courses elsewhere. The website says they're expecting abet accreditation when the first class graduates in 2014. Does anyone have any compelling reason to to believe this will or wont happen? It looks pretty legit but I'm still skeptical. Wouldn't that make this the first online engineering degree to be abet accredited? Anyone happen to know if the students and faculty of the normal Stony Brook EE program take it seriously? Any clue what employers or grad schools will think of it? Even assuming it turns out to be an excellent program and has no problems with abet, will the reputation of online degrees still make it worthless? For someone choosing between this and a particularly lousy regular school, would this program make sense? Or is a bad regular program still better than any online program?
