The Alabama Astrobotics team has recently migrated from a shared space with Baja SAE Bama Racing and Formula SAE Crimson Racing teams, to its own space in Bureau of Mines 4, the former student machine shop. The new location includes multiple worktables, computer areas and a soundproof and dustproof testing pit.

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.
