In addition to the support of improvement of professional education programs in higher education institutions through the accreditation of education programs, JABEE implements promotional activities by organizing symposia and workshops. JABEE supports the reform to outcomes-based education and the improvement of education through PDCA cycle, of engineering design education and of teamwork education which are particularly important for professional education. Accreditation bodies of professional education internationally have consensus that the educational improvement is made through the accreditation of education programs. International Engineering Alliance (IEA), of which the Washington Accord is a member (and JABEE is a signatory of the Washington Accord) continuously discusses over important issues of professional education such as definition of profile of professionals. JABEE introduces these international trends to Japanese education institutions.
