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 40 full-time faculty positions. It offers five baccalaureate degrees, four masters degrees, and a doctoral degree in systems engineering. Our enrollment for Fall of 2014 includes 1319 undergraduate students and 169 masters students. In 2013-2014 the College awarded 148 undergraduate degrees and 30 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.
