The College of Engineering is the premiere place for your child to learn, grow, and change the world. Welcome to our Engineering family.

Our student body is as diverse as the seven departments that form our college. The faculty and staff believe strongly that the College of Engineering has a positive effect on the young people who come to the Capstone to pursue an education. Certainly, students expect a world-class engineering education, but the College of Engineering strives to do far more. We are here to help students graduate as not only as better engineers, but as better people.

We welcome you to learn more about the opportunities below.


Freshman Engineering Program

The Freshman Engineering Program at The University of Alabama is the designated engineering program for incoming freshman students as well as new transfer students to UA’s College of Engineering. This comprehensive program enhances students’ sense of community and belonging and improves the instruction of and the introduction to the disciplines of engineering and computer science.

Through the FEP, we offer a small school atmosphere supported by all the resources of a large university. Also associated with the FEP are courses in calculus, chemistry, English and physics. The overarching goal is for students to be excited about a career in engineering or computer science and be prepared with the core knowledge in math, science, English and engineering to be successful in their later years on campus.
