The UAB School of Engineering is comprised of nearly 1,500 students. Roughly 60 percent are undergraduate and 40 percent are graduate students.
Our undergraduate students are immediately exposed to the engineering design process as freshmen. Students will participate in design projects all throughout their undergraduate curriculum. We have a dedicated Undergraduate Design Laboratory with computer-controlled milling machines/lathes to provide cutting-edge equipment for students to engage in engineering design.
