Entrance Requirements and Recommendations

Requirements

The University of Alabama (UA) employs a competitive admission process that includes reviewing and evaluating each application on an individual basis for an applicant’s abilities as a student and a scholar. Decisions about the potential for academic success at UA are based on a student’s performance on the ACT and/or SAT, high school grade point average (GPA), and high school course schedule. UA looks for students who show a commitment to academics and who welcome the robust exchange of ideas that occurs within a diverse and inclusive learning environment. Typically, the number of applications received exceeds the number of spaces available in the freshman class. The college preparatory curriculum minimum unit requirements for general admission are: four units of English; four units of social studies, including world history; three units of mathematics (must include Algebra I, Algebra II and one unit of either Geometry, Trigonometry, or Calculus); one unit of foreign language; three units of science, including two courses with a laboratory; and five units of courses including fine arts, computer literacy, mathematics, sciences, or foreign language. Transfer students must have a GPA of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 scale.

Recommendations

Suitable courses may be substituted for students whose high schools do not offer some of the coursework outlined above.

Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

AEROSPACE ENGINEERING AND MECHANICS: Over the years, students have designed Navy Seal Assault Aircraft, small remotely controlled aircraft, single-stage-to-orbit vehicles, and Navy Common Support Aircraft. AE 451, Structural Design and Testing covers experimental techniques as well as detailed design of typical aerospace structural components. One of the design projects includes fabrication and failure testing. In AE 413, Aerodynamics III, students have designed and had constructed a Mach 4.0 Wind Tunnel nozzle and in AE 313, Aerodynamics, students designed a double wedge air foil to help determine the Mach number in an existing wind tunnel.

CHEMICAL ENGINEERING: In the senior design courses, students are given an objective, and they must write a detailed paper which includes summary, discussion, process, diagrams, analysis, and all calculations. In the Summer Unit Operations Laboratory, students work in teams to design experiments, build or checkout equipment, collect data, analyze results, and report on outcomes.

CIVIL AND ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING: Student design projects are required in the following courses: Structural Engineering-design, build, and test a (drinking) straw bridge, a spruce truss, and a balsa wood bridge using RISA 2D and EXCEL; Senior Design Project-competing in groups with each other, carry a project from inception to some final project requested by engineering companies; Water Resources Engineering-design facilities to transport potable water and wastewater; Reinforced Concrete Structures-computer analysis of concrete beams and slabs of concrete; and Environmental Engineering Special Problems-design and build a unit process for water or wastewater treatment, and storm water treatment options.

COMPUTER SCIENCE: CS 415 is the capstone software engineering course within the discipline. It provides students with a real-world project each Fall. The course works regularly with a number of industries in the region to provide a meaningful project for the students to analyze, design, and implement. The course has regular interaction with industry.

ELECTRICAL AND COMPUTER ENGINEERING: ECE 494 Capstone Design requires advanced knowledge and laboratory experience in one electrical engineering specialization; concludes design experience in the programs; and covers design methodology, proposals, documentation, review, and validation; ethics and professionalism; oral presentations and written reports. Each student is required to work within a team to design and demonstrate a significant, timely, and relevant device or concept.

INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING: All industrial engineering seniors complete three projects in the IE Design Clinic. During the first semester, students complete two individual projects. The third is a semester-long team project, for which the client pays a nominal fee. All projects are performed for clients in local industry, service or government institutions. Students must define the problem, generate design alternatives, evaluate those alternatives, and make a recommendation to the client. Typical topics include inventory control, facility or office layout, statistical quality control, material handling systems design, productivity improvement, and information system development. Final written reports and oral briefings are required.

MECHANICAL ENGINEERING: Capstone Design I Project is for first semester senior students and are competitive in that multiple teams are given the same project description. Capstone Design II Project is for second semester senior students and are sponsored by engineering companies and typically require the student teams to design a component and have a prototype built and evaluated for the customer. Student teams serve as consultants to the companies and work with company engineers in solving their particular task.

Undergraduate

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Admission requirements for the College are the same requirements for the University. It is a competitive admission process that includes reviewing and evaluating each application on an individual basis for an applicant’s abilities as a student and a scholar. Decisions about the potential for academic success at UA are based on a student’s performance on the ACT and/or SAT, high school grade point average, and high school course schedule. Students are encouraged to exceed the college preparatory curriculum minimum requirements for general admission by completing further courses in mathematics and physics.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

A student applies to the program of study at the time of application for admission.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

International applicants are required to submit proof of completion of secondary schooling including any final examinations for the awarding of a high school diploma and be eligible for university entrance in their home country. An above average result is considered along with a variety of coursework. Proof of language proficiency is necessary for all applicants who do not declare English as their first language. Successful results from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), the Pearson's Test (PTE), or enrollment in our English Language Institute (ELI) to a successful level meeting minimum GPA requirements and/or ELI Certificate of Proficiency can satisfy the language requirement. Transfer applicants who have completed post secondary study from outside the United States are asked to submit an official transcript and a course by course evaluation from an approved credential evaluation agency for each institution attended. A minimum overall grade point average of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale is needed for admission. In addition to meeting academic and language requirements, all United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requirements must be submitted and approved for visa issuance.

Residency Requirements

A maximum of 64 semester hours of two-year college credit will be applied toward graduation requirements. If a student transfers less than 64 hours at the time of the initial enrollment at The University, additional two-year college credit may be transferred later. Once 64 credit hours have been accumulated from all sources, no more than 12 additional semester hours may be transferred from a two-year college. The additional, transfer courses must be equivalent to 100- or 200-level courses at The University of Alabama. A maximum of 96 hours will be accepted from a four-year institution and applied toward graduation requirements. In addition, all students must earn in residence in that school at least one-fourth of the semester hours required for the degree, including nine of the last 18 hours.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Transfer applicants must have at least a 2.0 grade point average on a 4.0 scale at the last institution attended and must be eligible to return to their current institution. In determining the transfer student's GPA, the college counts each enrollment in a course as hours attempted. This policy applies even though repeat enrollments may not have been included in the computation of the average by the institution offering the courses. College of Engineering students may not attempt any course more than three times, including enrollments at other institutions. Transfer applicants who will have earned fewer than 24 semester hours at the time they enroll at the University also must meet freshman admission standards.

Number of Transfer Students from:

A two-year community junior college where they were full-time students: 90
A four-year college or university where they were full-time students: 72

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
