This collection includes theses and dissertations from the J.B. Speed School of Engineering. It is not exhaustive since most paper theses and dissertations have not been digitized. Generally, paper copies of theses and dissertations published prior to 2014 (Master of Engineering, prior to 2005) can be accessed in the University of Louisville Libraries. If you would like to add your thesis or dissertation to this collection, please see: http://ir.library.louisville.edu/about.html.
