The Association for Engineering Education of Russia conducts professional and public accreditation of engineering educational programmes since 2000 in accordance with international requirements. This fact is confirmed by AEER membership in the world's most authoritative alliances: Washington Accord, IPEA, ENAEE. This means that the procedures and criteria used by AEER for accreditation are recognised in the signatory countries of these agreements (and there are more than 25 of them) and, therefore, the accreditation of programmes is international one.
