Song’s Leadership Revitalizes Tuscaloosa City Schools MATHCOUNTS Program

UA Engineering Professor's Leadership Adds up to Greater Math & STEM Education in Tuscaloosa City Schools

By Brinkley Wood

Math skills are the framework on which the engineering profession is based. Middle school years are the critical period to foster interest in math learning. Dr. Aijun Song, an electrical and computer engineering associate professor at The University of Alabama College of Engineering, sought to make a difference in STEM learning at local middle schools.

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.
