Capstone Engineer – Spring 2014

With the completion of the North Engineering Research Center, The University of Alabama has completed about $300 million in engineering and science facilities. The four buildings surround the Shelby Engineering and Science Quad, and are helping transform the UA College of Engineering’s teaching and research along with recruitment of students and faculty.

The issue looks at the NERC and the making of the Shelby Quad. It also examines new research at the Center for Advanced Public Safety, a recent graduate who serves as the city engineer in Jackson, Miss., and a start-up company from College research, e-Electricity.
