The accreditation is for the J.B. Speed School of Engineering's bachelor's programs in:

The Master of Engineering degrees (MEng. in Engineering Management excluded) are individually accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. The commission has accredited the master of engineering degrees at Speed for more than 20 years in all disciplines except the newest addition – bioengineering -- which received master's accreditation in 2011. 

The accreditation is for the J.B. Speed School of Engineering's master of engineering programs in:

"The Speed School of Engineering is very proud to be the first engineering school to achieve ABET dual-level accreditation for its baccalaureate and master of engineering programs," former Speed School Dean Mickey Wilhelm said. 

ABET is a not-for-profit organization owned and operated by more than 25 professional and technical member societies; it has set higher education technical standards in its fields for nearly 75 years. The voluntary, peer-review process requires its programs to show continuous improvement in the quality of education they provide to students. The accreditation achievement also can help students choose quality college programs, enable employers and graduate schools to recruit well-prepared graduates and furnish registration, licensure and certification boards a basis for screening applicants.

UofL also offers a bachelor of science degree in computer science that ABET's Computing Accreditation Commission accredits.

The engineering school requires three alternating semesters of cooperative education in all its baccalaureate degree programs. Doctoral and master of science degrees are offered currently in all engineering disciplines except bioengineering. Within UofL, the J.B. Speed School of Engineering has an undergraduate enrollment of 1,500 students and total enrollment of more than 2,000, with an average class size of 27.

The University of Louisville is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4907; Telephone number (404) 679-4501) to award associate, bachelor, master's, doctoral, and first professional degrees (D.M.D., J.D., M.D.).
