Recently, China Engineering Education Accreditation Association issued the results of engineering education major accreditation in 2017. The food science and engineering major of Northwest A&F niversity was upon the list, ranking as one of the first food science and engineering majors that have passed accreditation after China joined the Washington Accord.

China formally joined the "Washington Accord" organization for international engineering education in June 2016. With 21 majors qualified for engineering accreditation, the quality of engineering education in China has been recognized by the world. In October 2016, the food science and engineering major of Northwest A&F University submitted an application for engineering education accreditation to the Higher Education Evaluation Center of the Ministry of Education and passed the preliminary examination in February 2017. In April, it submitted a formal self-evaluation report to the Higher Education Evaluation Center of the Ministry of Education and was affirmed by the inspecting expert group in June.

The passing of engineering education accreditation indicates that the quality of undergraduate training in food science and engineering of Northwest A&F University has achieved international equivalent, entering the “first square” of global engineering education. The party and government leaders of the college of Food Science and Engineering expressed that they would continue to promote the reform of undergraduate education and teaching, deepen the reform and construction of majors in order to build first-rate majors and cultivate first-rate talents.
