Welcome to UAH’s College of Engineering (CoE), where we seek to advance undergraduate and graduate knowledge through education, research, and collaboration in the core engineering disciplines.

As the largest of UAH’s five colleges, the CoE offers all the resources of a major Public Research and Space Grant University, but with the small classes sizes you’d expect of the nation’s smallest public tier-one research university. And since we’re located in Huntsville – also known as the Rocket City – we benefit from the wealth of engineering expertise that surrounds UAH.

Should you choose to become an engineering major, you’ll have the opportunity to pursue a challenging curriculum enhanced by hands-on experience through laboratory research, internships, and co-op positions. You’ll also be able to take part in the CoE’s many affiliated clubs and organizations and put what you’ve learned in the classroom to use, whether it’s building a concrete canoe or designing a moon buggy! And once you graduate? You’ll join the likes of Dr. Jan Davis, former NASA Astronaut; Dr. Marc Bendickson, CEO of Dynetics; and Dr. Werner Dahm, Chief Scientist of the US Air Force – all of whom earned a degree from the CoE.
