University of Alabama engineering professor Bharat Balasubramanian said another reason Mercedes is considered a top employer is its emphasis on training and the continued qualification of its staff and engineering and factory workers. Balasubramanian spent 15 years as head of engineering research and development at Mercedes.

“Mercedes has invested a lot of time and money in us,” Showell agreed.

In 1837, The University of Alabama became one of the first five universities in the nation to offer engineering classes. Today, UA’s College of Engineering has more than 5,800 students and more than 150 faculty. In recent years, students in the College have been named USA Today All-USA College Academic Team members, Goldwater, Hollings, Portz, Boren, Mitchell and Truman scholars.
