What makes a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree from the J.B. Speed School of Engineering at the University of Louisville so special? It starts with our Areas of Study:
Each of these degree programs is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET.
We know you’ll love the University of Louisville campus. Our guides will show you the idyllic environment that include our residence halls, dining facilities, and academic buildings – all just minutes from downtown Louisville.
And, of course, we’ll also show you the state-of-the-art technology and facilities that make Speed School the perfect place to start your career in engineering. You’ll see it all: labs, equipment, classrooms, and the new Engineering Garage. Your guide will be a current Speed School engineering student.
Students with less than 12 transferable semester hours are considered in a similar fashion as freshmen students and must meet the admissions requirements for new freshmen and have a minimum college grade point average of 2.8.
Students with 12-23 transferable semester hours will have a minimum college grade point average of 2.8 (including UofL GPA), Reading ACT of at least 20 or successful completion of ENGL 101 or equivalent and at least B-minus grades in each of the following courses: Pre-Calculus (MATH 190 or equivalent) and Intro to Chemistry (CHEM 101 or equivalent). Algebra plus Trig or Adv Math can be substituted for Pre-Calculus.
Students with 24 hours or more transferable semester hours will have a minimum college grade point average of 2.8 and at least B-minus grades in each of the following courses: Pre-Calculus (MATH 190 or equivalent) and Intro to Chemistry (CHEM 101 or equivalent). Algebra plus Trig or Adv Math can be substituted for Pre-Calculus.
If you are interested in learning more about the requirements for admissions, please contact an admissions counselor.
The Office of Transfer Services evaluates transfer credit and academic units advise about courses needed for degree completion after the student has been admitted to the University of Louisville. Transfer work that is college-level, academic in nature and earned at appropriately accredited programs will be accepted and posted as credit earned (i.e., with no grade). The School of Engineering requires a minimum “C” grade for any transferred course to be accepted as credit toward a degree.
A transfer student must earn at least sixty (60) semester hours applicable toward the baccalaureate degree at a fully accredited four-year program at a college or university. Thirty of the last thirty-six semester hours must be earned at the University of Louisville.
