New Parternships.

Recently, the J.B. Speed School of Engineering was named as one of General Electric Company’s “executive schools,” only one of 47 such institutions—being the only one in Kentucky. This distinction will create more internships, co-ops, and full-time employment opportunities for UofL students. This is the most recent step in collaboration on a number of research projects. UofL professors routinely teach courses at GE’s Louisville Appliance Park. In addition to being named an “executive school,” GE has opened its first micro-factory on UofL’s Belknap campus and will play a role in the new Belknap Engineering & Applied Sciences Park as it opens soon.
