H.M. Comer

H.M. Comer Hall opened in 1962 as the Mineral Industries Building. H.M. Comer Hall was named after Hugh Moss Comer, the son of Gov. Braxton Bragg Comer, a Birmingham industrialist who served as the first chairman of the Greater University Development Campaign. H.M. Comer became home to civil, chemical, metallurgical and mineral engineering.

After 18 months of extensive renovations, H.M. Comer Hall reopened in August 2018 as the home of the College of Engineering’s administration. The building includes the Patterson Welcome Center, the ACIPCO Engineering Career Development Center, the Brasfield and Gorrie Advising Center, the Dean’s office, External Affairs and Development, Financial Affairs, Information Technology and Engineering Services, and the offices for all seven academic departments.
