The BEST Experience

We're Back!! -  BEST Experience 2016

June 19th-24th, 2016 on the UAH campus


Are you interested in engineering as a career? If so, the College of Engineering invites you to join the BEST Experience, where you can Be an Engineering STudent (for a week!).

The BEST Experience is a week-long residential program that gives high-school students a taste of what being an engineer student at UAH is all about. Students will go to engineering classes, perform hands-on experiments in engineering labs, participate in UAH student life activities, work on project teams, live in the residence halls and eat at campus dining facilities. The BEST Experience will let students explore different types of engineering and aspects of design, build, and test—all while living like college student.

The BEST Experience is a great way to “try” being an engineering student to see just how challenging and fun it can be!

Program Fees: The BEST Experience fee covers all program costs including room and meals, laboratory and classroom materials, and student life activities. Transportation to and from campus is not included. 

Alabama Residents:    $350

Non-Alabama Residents:    $650

Scholarships:   The BEST Experience will provide scholarships for up to 70% of the program fee ($245 for residents/$455 for non-residents).  Scholarship amounts are based on demonstrated financial need and subject to available funds.
