When a University of Alabama football player with an injured arm instinctively stiff-armed a defender in the 2015 Southeastern Conference Championship Game, he was able to do so thanks to doctors, athletic trainers, engineering students, professors and a 3-D printer.

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.
