Research With the Best

UAH is synonymous with cutting-edge research. Our students conduct research alongside institutions such as NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, the U.S. Army, and the Missile Defense Agency, just to name a few. Ranked as an “R1 – Very High Research Activity” by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, UAH is among America’s leading research-intensive universities.

UAH Is the First Step toward a Fulfilling Career

As a Charger, you will have the chance to become involved in internships and cooperative education, which allows a student to be placed in a degree-related field for multiple semesters with an employer. Both internships and co-ops help students not only fine-tune the knowledge they have gained in the classroom and research facilities, but also expand their professional networks. UAH is unique in providing students with countless opportunities to make an impact in the real world.

The support I received from UAH’s Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering led to an internship at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), which led me to completing doctoral research at ORNL and eventually to my current career at Sparkz Inc.
