2024-2025 CATALOG

The Academic Catalog is the official listing of courses, programs of study, academic policies and degree requirements for Loyola University Chicago. It is published every year in advance of the next academic year.


Loyola Engineering enrolled its first students in Fall 2015. We obtained our ABET accreditation in Fall 2020. A hallmark of our program is our emphasis on active learning. Rather than delivering a full lecture in each course, each professor provides a mini-lecture to go over fine points of the homework. To facilitate active learning, there are never more than 24 students in any Engineering course section. Active learning increases the retention of female students, students of color, and first-generation students; and is one aspect of our social justice-informed program. We are proud to be the first Engineering program in the U.S. to fully integrate social justice and Engineering in our curriculum.
