Shaping the Next Century of Engineering Excellence, Discovery, and Transformation

Celebrate a century of excellence in engineering education with the J.B. Speed School of Engineering at the University of Louisville! As we prepare to commemorate our 100th anniversary in 2025, we embark on an exciting campaign to construct a state-of-the-art engineering building, poised to shape the next century of innovation and discovery. This ambitious endeavor aims to provide cutting-edge facilities and resources that will inspire the brightest minds to push the boundaries of scientific exploration. With world-class laboratories, collaborative spaces, and advanced technology at their fingertips, our students and faculty will unlock new frontiers in engineering, driving progress in fields such as sustainable energy, biomedical engineering, artificial intelligence, and beyond. Join us in shaping the future as we build upon a legacy of engineering excellence and forge ahead towards limitless possibilities. Together, we will continue to cultivate the engineers and leaders of tomorrow and transform the world through ingenuity and innovation.
