The University of Alabama in Huntsville is one of America’s premier doctoral-granting, research intensive universities, situated in the heart of beautiful North Alabama.

Located adjacent to the Redstone Arsenal, an economic engine of over $100 billion per year, UAH faculty, staff, and students are able to conduct research side-by-side with world-class experts from NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, the U.S. Army, the Missile Defense Agency, the Defense Intelligence Agency, and other important Department of Defense partners. UAH regularly ranks among the Top 20 Universities in research funded by NASA and by the Department of Defense, but UAH also performs cutting-edge research for the National Science Foundation, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Department of Energy, and the National Institutes of Health. As the anchor tenant of Cummings Research Park, the second largest corporate Research and Technology park in the United States, UAH collaborates with over 285 high-technology companies serving the U.S. Aerospace and Defense sectors, as well as scientists and entrepreneurs at the Hudson Alpha Institute for Biotechnology.

Classified by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching as a “Very High Research” University – the highest ranking achievable – UAH augments scholarly research in its Colleges with its Interdisciplinary Research Centers, ranging from Modeling & Simulation, to Information Assurance, to Aerospace and Systems Engineering. Our robust capabilities in Astrophysics, Cybersecurity, Data Analytics, Logistics and Supply Chain Management, Optical Systems and Engineering, Reliability and Failure Analysis, Rotorcraft and Unmanned Systems, Severe Weather, Space Propulsion, and many others are nationally and internationally known. UAH’s Colleges and Research Centers partner in many areas, working together to educate and inspire tomorrow’s leaders, discover new knowledge, and innovate solutions to address many of society’s toughest challenges.
