Bachelor's & Master's in 5 Years

Complete your Bachelor of Science in Engineering and earn an accelerated Master of Engineering through Speed School’s highly popular 4+1 program.

Master's of Engineering (MEng)

If you are on track to obtain a Bachelor of Science in any engineering program from UofL, you can earn your master’s degree with just three additional semesters of study. It adds another layer of expertise and a professional credential to distinguish you from others in the field.

How Does It Work?
Here’s what to know about our 4+1 program:

  • Your undergraduate work must include three semesters of Co-Op Education
  • Your undergraduate and graduate degrees must be pursued in the same engineering discipline
  • A thesis is not required, but you may elect a thesis option

The J.B. Speed School of Engineering was the first school in the nation to have both Bachelor of Science and Master of Engineering programs (with the exception of Engineering Management) accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET.
