Real-world insight, hands-on education

Prosperity depends on a region's ability to create new businesses and help existing ones become more efficient and an employer's ability to adapt to changing markets and technologies. That requires a flexible, highly educated workforce.

UAB's education programs, especially its strengths in emerging fields — such as biomedical engineering, industrial distribution, computer security and neuroscience — prepare today's students to be the leaders of tomorrow.

Our interdisciplinary curricula, experiential learning and new signature certificate programs provide unique, tailored benefits to students while helping companies prosper and grow and ensure the university remains relevant to students and potential employers.
