College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

The J. B. Speed School of Engineering offers B.S. degree programs in bioengineering, chemical, civil, computer engineering and computer science, electrical, industrial, and mechanical engineering. The Bachelor of Science and 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 Bachelor of Science in computer science program is also accredited by the Computer Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

The Speed School is the first engineering school to achieve dual-level accreditation by EAC of ABET for its baccalaureate and master of engineering programs. Three alternating semesters of cooperative education is mandatory in all of the baccalaureate degree programs. Master of Science and Ph.D. programs are offered in all engineering disciplines except bioengineering (proposals for these are forthcoming soon).

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

The prospective student must make a formal application for admission to the J. B. Speed School of Engineering. The proper form is available from either the Office of Academic Affairs of the J. B. Speed School of Engineering or the University of Louisville Admissions Office.
A student is eligible for admission to the academic programs of the Speed School upon the basis of graduation from an accredited high school with at least 20 units or credits meeting the Kentucky Pre-College Curriculum requirements.
For students desiring to pursue studies in engineering, the distribution of the mathematics and science units or credits must be as follows: Algebra 2, Plane geometry 1, Advanced mathematics; trigonometry, introduction to analytical geometry, calculus, or equivalent 1, Physics 1, Chemistry 1.
It is recommended that the prospective engineering student have basic instruction in computer programming and mechanical drawing.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Prospective candidates for Bachelor of Science degree must file an application for admission to the Professional School of Engineering. Indicating their choice as to the engineering field of specialization. Subject to the approval of the department chair, a student will then be admitted to the Professional School, Division of Basic Studies, to pursue a combined program of studies and cooperative education experience in the approved engineering field of specialization.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

A student admitted from another accredited institution will usually be allowed credit for courses equivalent to those that apply toward a degree granted by the University of Louisville

Number of Transfer Students from:

A two-year community junior college where they were full-time students: 27
A four-year college or university where they were full-time students: 21

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
