Dr. Clifford L. Henderson has been named the next dean of The University of Alabama College of Engineering and will begin his tenure August 1. Henderson comes to UA from the University of South Florida after spending five years as a professor and chair of the department of chemical, biological and materials engineering.

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 5,200 students and more than 170 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.
