A strong partnership between The University of Alabama, Alabama Power Company and Mercedes-Benz U.S. International, Inc. fuels a newly-formed research and workforce development center designed to meet the needs of the booming electric vehicle market.

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.
