By Associated Engineering Press

A building has now been made to survive the impact of an earthquake, and possibly a hurricane. UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA engineers built a two-story structure to stand strong in the wake of a natural disaster. The building is designed with a special wooden material stronger than what is normally used. 

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.
