By Associated Engineering Press

We are approaching the take-off of a University of Alabama student-built satellite. Students in UASpace, a student organization on campus have put three years of work into preparing for their satellite to be launched into space as a part of a NASA program.

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.
