Comparison between accreditation systems of university study programs in Japan and Indonesia is very briefly described in this article. BAN-PT and JABEE have been establishing their accreditation systems, which contain ABET criteria, namely criteria of learning process and student outcomes as their basic components as well as the other criteria for their own missions. Therefore, both the accreditation systems are not substantially different from each other. However, apparent disparity of both the systems can be seen on the practical application. We can infer the disparity from comparison between the study program accredited by JABEE and the rank-A study program accredited by BAN-PT, but the author would like to emphasize that this does not mean the comparison of Japanese and Indonesian students' capabilities. Most of all Asian countries conduct evaluation and accreditation of higher education programs. However, if we take a look at human resources and facilities of higher education institutions in developing countries comparing with those in Japanese universities, a large gap can be seen. When Japanese universities receive the students from developing countries, understanding of the accreditation systems in their countries, the practical application manners of the systems and the accreditation results must bring useful and effective hints and advice to educate the students for international engineers, because the universities can know the students' learning process and outcomes.
