Engineering degrees of The University of the West Indies (UWI) are accredited by the Engineering Council of the UK, and whereas such accreditation by a member of the Washington Accord (a international mutual recognition agreement) is an indication of the high quality of UWI's degrees, it does not guarantee automatic recognition by other members of the Accord, such automatic recognition being accorded to accreditation by a member within its national borders.
