The Industrial Technology program was awarded national accreditation by the Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering (ATMAE) on November 10, 2009, at the ATMAE Board of Accreditation hearing in Louisville, Ky. ATMAE is recognized as the premier professional association for the accreditation of industrial technology programs in colleges, universities, and technical institutes.

The organization is also responsible for the promotion of industrial technology in business, industry, education, and government, as well as certification of industrial technologists and recognition of their continued professional development.

ATMAE accreditation ensures that the university has met a series of national standards to provide industry with highly competent employees and assures the graduate of an ATMAE-accredited program that they are receiving a marketable degree through relevant curricula. Clarion University's Industrial Technology program's accreditation followed a rigorous and comprehensive evaluation process, which included a three-day on site visit by an ATMAE team of external reviewers in April, 2009.
