The purpose of the accreditation by NBA is to promote and recognize excellence in technical education in colleges and universities – at both the undergraduate and post graduate levels. Institutions, students, employers, and the public at large all benefit from the external verification of quality provided through the NBA accreditation process. They also benefit from the process of continuous quality improvement that is encouraged by the NBA’s developmental approach to promote excellence in technical education. Through accreditation, the following main purposes are served:
- Support and advice to technical institutions in the maintenance and enhancement of their quality of provision;
- confidence and assurance on quality to various stakeholders including students;
- assurance of the good standing of an Institution to government departments and other interested bodies;
- enabling an Institution to state publicly that it has voluntarily accepted independent inspection and has satisfied all the requirements for satisfactory operation and maintenance of quality in education.
