Shelter from the Storm

By Adam Jones

Could homeowners have protection from high winds at a more affordable price than traditional storm shelters provide? Answering that question is the goal of research inside an innovative University of Alabama lab designed to help the construction and insurance industries.

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.
