Giving to Advanced Safety Engineering and Management

The Master of Engineering with a concentration in Advanced Safety Engineering and Management and UAB's School of Engineering could not do what we do without your support. Traditional revenues such as tuition, fees, federal grants, and state funds provide for daily work, but they often vary with the level of state revenues and enrollments. Gifts from you create a secure, concrete foundation for our future success. They benefit not only students and faculty but also the community as a whole.
