Quality and accreditation are of great importance for organizations that offer services in different areas, in order to demonstrate their differences through an independent evaluation mechanism. This independent evaluation process is self-evident in almost every field. This situation has always tried to lead to better in the cycle of continuous improvement by evaluating the institutions and organizations under specific criteria. No doubt that the field of education cannot be considered separately from this process. This study focused on the preparation of the accreditation applications for undergraduate programs of Geomatics Engineering at Karadeniz Technical University (KTU). Thus, a sample accreditation application experience will be discussed and shared by taking the preparatory work for the accreditation application. With this study, these departments, which were accredited in the field of engineering, can also guide the other programs that want to be included in this process. One of the most critical results from study accreditation process which is independent of individuals, geomatics engineering students, who are in a prominent place in engineering education, can remain ahead of the game against both national and international competitors. It will be beneficial for the non-accredited 17 geomatics engineering departments to take their undergraduate programs in the accreditation process.
