When our new Dean of Engineering, Jeff Holmes, M.D., Ph.D., first arrived on campus, we asked him Five Questions about UAB, Birmingham, and himself. Recently, Holmes started posing his own "Five Questions" to our UAB Engineering students. In the clips below, senior Mariam Massoud answers questions about her experience as a UAB student. Then she turns the interview around with a few questions of her own for the new dean.
