About UAH

A University Launched from America's Quest to Conquer Space.

A public national research-intensive university, UAH has been a pipeline for the region’s professional workforce and a mainstay of the local economy since its founding in 1950. Our classroom curriculum is complemented by our robust internship, co-op, study abroad, and undergraduate research programs, which provide ample opportunity for our nearly 10,000 students to conduct hands-on research and gain real-world experience long before graduation. Outside of the classroom, UAH’s students enjoy a vibrant campus life featuring more than 150 student-run organizations, 12 fraternities and sororities, and 15 NCAA sports. The university’s 490+ acre campus is home to 17 high-tech research centers and labs responsible for close to $170 million in research expenditures. As the anchor tenant for Cummings Research Park, the second-largest research park in the nation, UAH also enjoys close partnerships with governmental and commercial employers like NASA, NOAA, the U.S. Army, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology.
