ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT: The Chemical and Materials Engineering Department has approximately 230 undergraduate students and about 10 graduate students. The Department has an ABET accredited undergraduate program, a M.S. program, and participates in two interdisciplinary doctoral programs in Materials Science and Biotechnology Science and Engineering, as well as the Chemical Engineering option through the Mechanical Engineering doctoral program. Active research and teaching programs exist in the areas of catalysis, thermodynamics, sustainable energy, nanotechnology, biomaterials, biomolecular and cellular engineering, and immunoengineering. The faculties and researchers in the department enjoy the close collaborations with NASA, Army Redstone Arsenal, HudsonAlpha Institute, and industrial partners.
ABOUT THE COLLEGE: The College of Engineering currently has a research focus that addresses three National Academy of Engineering (NAE) Grand Challenge problems: secure cyberspace; restore and improve urban infrastructure; and engineer tools of scientific discovery. In addition, COE has made recent investments in materials engineering, energy storage, biotechnology, cybersecurity, and systems engineering. The College enrolls nearly 35% of UAH’s undergraduates in ABET-accredited programs in aerospace, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, industrial and systems, mechanical, and optical engineering.
ABOUT THE UNIVERSITY: The University of Alabama in Huntsville, classified as a high Research Active institution, offers academic and research programs in the Colleges of Engineering, Education, Nursing, Business Administration, Science, and Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences. Huntsville maintains one of the highest per capita incomes and standards of living in the Southeast. It is a national center of aerospace and high technology research. The Huntsville area is also home to more than 50 Fortune 500 companies, the Hudson Alpha Institute for Biotechnology, and several federal research facilities, including NASA Marshall Space Flight Center and the Army’s Missile Defense Agency, Material Command, Aviation and Missile Command, and Space and Missile Defense Command.
The University of Alabama in Huntsville is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Institution. Consistent with our core values of integrity, respect, diligence, excellence, inclusiveness and diversity, the University strongly encourages applications from members of all under-represented groups.
