Sam Ameri, chair of the Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering at West Virginia University, has been appointed to serve as a member of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology’s Finance and Budget Committee.

Ameri, who was appointed from the Society of Petroleum Engineers, has served as a member of its board of directors since 2010. The finance committee is responsible for preparing ABET’s annual budget, reviewing the previous year’s budget performance and for maintaining a five-year financial forecast.

“It was my pleasure to serve on the ABET Global Committee for Accreditation for the past two years,” said Ameri. “I am now very happy to be moving into service on the Finance and Budget Committee, which conducts fiscal oversight of projects leading to important innovations.”

ABET accredits college and university programs in the disciplines of applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology. ABET accreditation provides assurance that a college or university program meets the quality standards established by the profession for which the program prepares its students.

ABET accredits postsecondary programs housed in degree-granting institutions which have been recognized by national or regional institutional accreditation agencies or national education authorities worldwide.
