Engineers have an enormous impact on today's world. How big of an impact do you want to make on tomorrow's world?

Make an Impact: Become an Engineer

Think Engineering

To be an engineer is to solve unrecognized problems to make the world that much richer. Without engineers there would be no cell phones, video game systems, or motorized transportation.

Think Speed School

Here at the Speed School, we believe that life takes engineering. Our co-op program offers students opportunities to utilize their skills, while integrating them into the workforce.

Be a Speed Engineer!

For nearly a century, the J.B. Speed School of Engineering has worked to educate new generations of engineers, who have gone on to enrich the world around them.

As the first school in the nation to be accredited at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, including a 5th year Master’s (MEng) by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, Speed School has been a leader in engineering education for nearly 90 years.

An Engineering degree from Speed School is more than just a major, or even a future career path. It’s about making a real impact on the world around us.
