Driving Innovation for Tomorrow’s Challenges

Engineers have always strived to build what is needed for today by attempting to solve tomorrow’s problems. While today’s problems are being solved, the faculty of College of Engineering at The University of Alabama educate tomorrow’s engineers and computer scientists for the challenges ahead.

The underlying goal of our research is educating the innovative and creative engineers and computer scientists who will invent tomorrow. Their impact reverberates around the world — and beyond.

The College is a leader in several areas of research, providing innovation for tomorrow’s

  • Aerospace
  • Automotive
  • Bioengineering
  • Energy
  • Environment
  • Materials
  • Public Safety
  • Software
  • Structures

The faculty at the College urges undergraduate students to join research teams working with cutting-edge technology to understand and solve some of the problems facing society. Whether you want to be a researcher or practicing engineer or developer after graduation, research enhances your education.

Also, Dr. Susan Burket offers EURO (Enhancing Undergraduate Research Opportunities) that prepares students for a research experience.

Many students in the College of Engineering also participate in the University’s Emerging Scholars Program, an exciting opportunity that helps incoming freshmen get involved in research with a faculty mentor in their chosen field.

In addition to undergraduate students working directly with UA College of Engineering faculty on research projects, the College of Engineering hosts numerous National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduate Programs.
