College of Engineering
The College of Engineering at the University of South Alabama is recognized for the quality of its graduates. Its graduates have done well in industrial and government careers, not only in the local Gulf Coast region, but also nationally and internationally. Its graduates have often continued their education in some of the most respected graduate schools in the country.
The College has four academic departments and 34 full-time faculty positions. It offers five baccalaureate degrees and four masters degrees. This fall of 2013 there are 1139 undergraduate students and 99 masters students. In 2012--2013 the College awarded 129 undergraduate degrees and 47 masters degrees.
Among the strengths of the college cited by its Industrial Advisory Board are its location, its affordability, and the fact that its graduates have a good hands-on technical image. On the other hand, some feel that the College has not marketed itself heavily enough and therefore lacks visibility and name recognition of other engineering colleges throughout the Southeast.
The foundation of the College of Engineering is its excellent faculty with their dedication to teaching and the researching of new knowledge. All professors have doctorates and have come to USA from some of the finest universities in existence.
