The J.B. Speed School of Engineering at the University of Louisville offers a Bachelor of Science degree in seven fields. Each are individually accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. An optional 5th year is encouraged to earn an accredited Master of Engineering. Speed School students gain real-world work experience through three semesters of required cooperative education. The co-op student is paid an hourly wage, and receives academic credit for each semester of work.

Regardless of what engineering discipline students select, each student will begin in the core engineering classes on which the foundation of future classes are based.

First-year students are part of the Engineering Fundamentals cohort, specifically designed to engage and support our newest students to help insure their success as they pursue an engineering degree. Our faculty and staff are committed to students and excited to help students navigate the important transition from high school to university life. Students will enroll in the undergraduate mathematics courses for engineering students as well as the required introductory engineering course and engineering graphics.
