The idea of using LED light to purify water might sound like something from a futuristic science-fiction movie, but thanks to a group of chemical engineering students at The University of Alabama, the future might be closer than you think.

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 5,200 students and more than 170 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.
