Accreditation of the Computer Engineering Programs

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering is part of the J.B. Speed School of Engineering. The Speed School comes under the University of Louisville. Our Department offers Bachelor of Science (B.S.) and Master of Engineering (M. Eng.) degrees. The baccalaureate program in Computer Science and Engineering consists of a four-calendar-year integrated sequence of academic course work and cooperative experience.

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Engineering degree program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,  http://www.abet.org, under the General Criteria and the Program Criteria for Electrical, Computer, Communications, Telecommunication(s) and Similarly Named Engineering Programs.

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Engineering degree program is also accredited by and Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org, under the General Criteria and the Program Criteria for Computer Science and Similarly Named Computing Programs.

The Master of Engineering in Computer Science and Engineering degree program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,  http://www.abet.org, under the General Criteria and the Program Criteria for Electrical, Computer, Communications, Telecommunication(s) and Similarly Named Engineering Programs.
